I went down to our lake tonight

  to sit and think of you and us

 I put my bare feet in the cool water

 and watched the sun sink

 into the firey red horizon

 beneath the deep azure sky

I thought, what a lucky woman I am

 to have a man like you to love me

 Your beauty strikes me

 and fills me with desire to know you
