Carousel Ride

The carousel spins and the music plays
Set in the center of an open expanse
Shadow faces blur in an obscure haze
Eyes catch my focus, slightly entranced
Mysterious melodies not quite heard,
as I strain my ears for some direction
All the sounds seem dull and slurred
Hence muting words of Your affection
I sense Your presence still with me
When darkness does envelop
You’ll take the reins and ride with me
On this horse that cannot gallop
When spinning stops and music ends
You’ll lift me gently to the ground
When time is right, You’ll suspend
This ride upon– the merry-go-round
