My mother died in 2011. She loved the music to this but never heard the lyrics. I added the lyrics to the music track years later. She once told me she had met my father on the shore of the lake in the town where we lived. This idea inspired me to romantically imagine what it may have been like for my father when he first saw her. If nothing more, this song may serve as a poetic metaphor reflecting the enchantment, desire and wonder of one smitten by seemingly impossible beauty and the promise of one great love.
This song is dedicated to the memory of Mildred Lorean Branch.
