Forever Love - Dolly Parton

from the album Pure & Simple (2016)

Dolly Parton is one of the greatest songwriters in all of music.  She also has a great voice.

But the thing that separates Dolly from the rest of the pack is her unabashed honesty.  She never tries to be anything but authentic and that endears her to me.

Last week, she released the album Pure & Simple, a record celebrating fifty years of marriage to Carl Dean.  It is a testament to enduring love.

Knowing that this record is a love letter, I jumped immediately to the closing track - Forever Love - and needed to go no further:

You touch me it's like no one else ever touched me
Kiss me and all other kisses just fade
No other arms come to mind when you hold me
As if ever knew that for you I was made

You are my joy and my laughter
You hung the moon and you gave the stars light
You are my ever after
Forever love, the light of my life

This is pure and simple, like a love song needs to be.
