A Captivating Invite

Riverside hills, warm summer night
Your hand extended, a simple invite
To where you lead, I will follow

Many lights, loud noise, laughter
This place is alive with music
Colors blaze across the sky
Animals adorn the corners
Of the makeshift booths

Two tickets in hand, a line we join
Waiting to our turn to sit and ride
Within a metal cart, to take us
Far up many miles high

We enter sitting close to each other
Smile with anticipation, twilight becomes
Holding hands as the motor starts
Slowly our hearts begin to race

Looking down as we go higher
The cool night breeze plays with my hair
You touch my knee, I puller you closer
Right above the boardwalk below

Time stands still, just us
Noise not heard, music faded
Colors vanished from the sky
As a kiss we share, way up there
Such a sweet tender soulful kiss

Who would have thought,
That a ride in a metal cart
Captured in a moment of bliss
Would steal my heart
Way up high, miles above
On a summer night
You, I and the Ferris Wheel
