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 the soul can hope or mind can hide.
and this is the wonder that is keeping the stars apart.
