wholehearted wisdom : i carry your heart

I Carry Your Heart
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 its 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 and mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that is keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)
