"Love is simple
I worship this tenacity
And the beautiful struggle we’re in
Love will not elude us"

From the song "Simple" by K.D. Lang

You know how it is when you hear or read something and you get that, "Ahh yes, that's IT" It just resonates. For so long I made love complicated. I discounted tenacity. I failed to see any beauty in struggle. But really, that's what abiding is all about.

SIMPLE
By K.D. Lang

Flawless light in a darkening air
Alone...and shining there
Love will not elude you

Love is simple
I worship this tenacity
And the beautiful struggle we’re in
Love will not elude us

Love is simple
Be sure to know that

All in love
Is ours
And love, as a philosophy
Is simple

I am calm in oblivion
Calm, as I ever have been
Love will not elude me
Love is simple
Be sure to know that
All in love
Is ours...
Is ours...

That all in love
Is ours
And love, as philosophy
Is simple...
And ours...
