I Carry Your Heart...

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)

- E.E. Cummings

In my college choir we sang an arrangement of this poem and I cried every time we performed it. Simply beautiful. You are lovely, by the way :)
