round and round we go

i see it spinning
the colors so bright
your eyes light up
hands clap with delight

i see you spinning
you never grow tired
you smooth down the tulle
you lift your hands higher

i see it spinning
your hands wrap the pole
i smile and i wave
as you ride on your foal

i see you spinning
a tale long and tall
your eyes avert mine
as you stare at the wall

i see it spinning
the wheels on the drive
seems like only yesterday
you were just five

i see you spinning
dropping clothes on the floor
a peck on my cheek
as you rush out the door

i see it spinning
each day through my mind
my life up to this point
i cannot rewind

i see you spinning
you feel so far away
but all of that work
was to get to today

i see it spinning
like the hands on the clock
time waits for no one
tick-tock, tick-tock

i see you spinning
your colors so bright
my eyes light up
my child, my delight
