I carry your heart with me

13 Jul

I watched the film In Her Shoes last week, and there was a poem at the end which really choked me. This poem is for my darling husband and beloved children..


I carry your heart with me
by E. E. Cummings


I carry your heart with me I carry it in

my heart I am never without it anywhere

I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing, my darling


I fear no fate for you are my fate, my sweet I want

no world for beautiful you are my world, my true

and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows

here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than soul can hope or mind can hide

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart


I carry your heart I carry it in my heart

    I just finished watching the same movie, came on line to find the poem, and was brought here. I send this to my husband, and 3 children as well.
