That's true, Lord:
love can become a very complicated affair!

Though it seems to me that true love,
real love, selfless love, genuine love
ought to be, on the whole,
not very complicated at all
- but rather simple...

True is the love
that seeks naught for itself
but simply looks to the other first,
to tend the other's needs...

Real love is as simple as
giving away one's heart to an other
without fear of losing anything
and hope for finding everything...

Selfless love is as simple as
letting go my heart
into an other's heart
- with no strings attached...

Genuine love is as simple as
your love for me, Lord:
giving for the sake of giving,
caring for the sake of caring,
forgiving for the sake of mercy,
loving for the sake of love...

It's true, Lord:
love can become a very complicated affair
though it seems to me that true love,
real love, selfless love, genuine love
ought to be, on the whole,
not very complicated at all
- but rather simple...

Disentangle my heart
and my relationships, Lord,
that I might love
as simply
as I am loved by you...

Give me a simple heart
and a simple love, O Lord,
and let that be enough,
indeed, let that be more than enough,
I pray...

Amen.
