One of my favorite poems

You know how sometimes a poem stays with you, long after you read it or heard it? This is one of those.

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)

Hi Marci! Thanks for checking out my blog! I was looking at your favourite music list and Colin Hay is one of my faves too. One of my favourites is "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You". I also like his accoustic version of "Overkill".

Nice to meet you:)
