Gabrielle - by Bob Atkinson

Gabrielle
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson
Gabrielle wake up, our moon rises
vitality ebbs as ocean tides
forcing us to absorb life's phases
good and bad, calm and rages

Gabrielle rise with the moon

calamity has conquered us
yet we stand again as we must

fill our time with our sighs
wander through those forest trees
setting hearts with poetry

Gabrielle rise with the moon

red or blue it stands with you
showing us we can subdue
phases of our life's account
either way, I'm content about

standing tall or stooping right
into our fundamental pride
Gabrielle rise with the moon

see it now our present tense
see it find us in our beds
see us free to begin to live
watch a summer moon again

Gabrielle rise with the moon

Gabrielle, we've done our duty
you and me we've gone through
accolades or disgraceful moods

now it's time to watch the moon
ponder over me and you

Gabrielle rise with the moon
