Rises The Moon by Liana Flores

Days seem sometimes as if they'll never end
Sun digs its heels to taunt you
But after sunlit days, one (1)__________ (2)__________ the same
Rises the moon
Days fade into a watercolour blur
Memories (3)________ and haunt you
But look into the lake, shimmering (4)________ smoke
Rises the moon
Oh-oh, close your weary eyes
I promise you that soon the autumn comes
To darken (5)____________ summer skies
Breathe, breathe, breathe
Days pull you down just (6)________ a (7)______________ ship
Floating is getting harder
But tread the water, child, and know that meanwhile
Rises the moon
Days pull you up just like a daffodil
Uprooted from its garden
They'll tell you what you owe, but know even so
Rises the moon
You'll be visited by sleep
I promise you that soon the autumn comes
To steal (8)________ each dream you keep
Breathe, breathe, breathe
(1) thing(2) stays(3) swim(4) like(5) fading(6) like(7) sinking(8) away
