Rises The Moon by Liana Flores

Days seem (1)__________________ as if they'll (2)__________ end
Sun digs its heels to taunt you
But after sunlit days, one thing (3)__________ the same
Rises the moon
Days (4)________ into a (5)______________________ blur
Memories swim and (6)__________ you
But look into the lake, shimmering like smoke
Rises the moon
Oh-oh, (7)__________ (8)________ weary eyes
I promise you (9)________ soon the autumn comes
To darken fading summer skies
Breathe, breathe, breathe
Days (10)________ you down (11)________ like a sinking ship
Floating is getting harder
But (12)__________ the water, child, and (13)________ that meanwhile
Rises the moon
Days (14)________ you up (15)________ (16)________ a daffodil
Uprooted from its garden
They'll (17)________ you (18)________ you owe, but know even so
Rises the moon
You'll be visited by sleep
I promise you (19)________ soon the autumn comes
To steal (20)________ each dream you keep
Breathe, breathe, (21)______________
