Carousel
by Unknown Legend

Riding on a Carousel, face towards the wind
going ‘round in circles, coming back again.
Grabbing for the brass ring, just when it’s in sight
lights are shining all around … maybe some too bright.

Sometimes as you feel in life, going ‘round and ’round
for like this happy carousel it has its ups and downs.
The music plays so gaily, sometimes it’s way too loud
enjoying the excitement, you’re caught up in the crowd.

You’ve come again full circle, you think you have returned
now in search another ticket , more lessons to be learned.
You hope this ride will last forever, you know it never will
too soon your time is over … the motion ever still.
