CEE’S WHICH WAY CHALLENGE: WEEK 2

GOING ROUND AND ROUND

Round and Round

 WHEELS KEEP ON TURNING

Ferris Wheel 2

THE FERRIS WHEEL OF LIFE

Maggie Gultiano

(A collab write with Kayte, a fellow poet) 

We’re going to ride the Ferris Wheel of Life
And when it gets to the top, 
We’ll review each of the blessings we’ve received. 
They never seem to stop! 

Round and round we go
never stopping, never wondering
our life’s struggle has it’s beginning
it will always have it’s ending

Along our way we’ve found laughter, 
love and happiness, freely given by
Earth Angels we call ‘Friends.’ – 
From them we find courage to ride
Life’s Ferris Wheel time and again.

We have our ups and downs
And fears for the future in our early rise
Our aching knees we take in stride
We have a God that heals and provides
For this we trust in faith and give thanks

As long as there’s beauty in the sunrise, 
The sound of laughter at a sweet surprise
A child reaching for our hands to hold
The ride on Life’s Ferris Wheel, we’ll savor
Just knowing the blessings of God’s favor, 
Our hearts will be happy and we’ll never grow old!
