Let’s Take a Magic Carpet Ride

Updated on February 1, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

let’s take off among the clouds,

be as free as the birds in the skies,

enjoying a fun-filled ride.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

put back the smiles we left behind.

Let’s let go of yesterday

and take off and find our heart’s desire.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

somewhere high in the night sky.

Let’s dance among the stars,

by the moonlight and never wonder why.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

over wonders untold,

stopping in gardens delightful,

just to dance in the sun or rain.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

pretending that fairy tales are real,

Thrilling at the love we’ve found,

delighting in all that we see.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

around the world and back.

Let’s catch the dreams we’ve been chasing

and make tomorrow a better day.


Let’s take a magic carpet ride,

leaving all our worries behind.

Just you and me,

in a world full of fantasy.

      Definitely Michael. As they say the sky is the limit but with such a magic carpet perhaps we could go even farther.
