ANNEKE
Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead
Copyright 1973, 2017

Anneke, like a star goddess of the night
I yearn to feel your arms about me tight
The planets above us beam so bright
I caress your hair in the moonlight
I know that my love will be sweet
I know that my heart will still beat for you

Anneke, a star in the Milky Way
Your hair - so beautiful in disarray
We're touched by the cool, blue ocean spray
I recall that night of the first day

Anneke, just remember that I love you
I know that I would never be untrue
Let's keep this secret entre nous
As we lie in the mist of the night-dew
I know that my love will be sweet
I know that my heart will e'er beat for you

Inspired by and dedicated to Anneke,
who worked at Phoenix Graphics in Calgary,
late 1973
