i carry your heart

(click to enlarge image)

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 the 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)

---- e.e. cummings

This is beautiful! I am working on something using this same poem. I sent my hubby off to Iraq for a year with this poem in his bag. He came back with many trinkets and memorabilia and I want to make some art from it... It's wonderful to see how one poem can evoke so many different images for people. Thanks for sharing!
