Pressed by the moon
Into an unknown 
Lured into the mystery
Of its spell
Staring at the glow
Knowing of the effect
On the oceans tides
Wondering if an internal
Change really happens
What I see reminds
Those who gaze
Those who wish
And those who count on
The forces of the orb
Will you pull
On the waters 
Of my life with
The ebb and
The flow
Like an opened page
Giving and emitting
Energy to make dreams
Filled with passion
That exercise the strength
Of the brain 
The organic computer
Shine more shine
