Rises The Moon by Liana Flores

Days seem sometimes as if they'll never end
Sun digs its (1)__________ to taunt you
But (2)__________ sunlit days, one thing stays the same
Rises the moon
Days fade into a watercolour blur
Memories swim and haunt you
But look into the lake, shimmering like smoke
Rises the moon
Oh-oh, close your (3)__________ eyes
I promise you that (4)________ the autumn comes
To darken fading summer skies
Breathe, breathe, breathe
Days pull you down just like a (5)______________ ship
Floating is (6)______________ harder
But tread the water, child, and know that meanwhile
Rises the moon
Days (7)________ you up (8)________ (9)________ 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 (10)________ each dream you keep
Breathe, breathe, breathe
