On My Mind…In My Heart

I love texting “Thinking of you” poems to my daughter and son, Juliana & Julian, so they don’t forget that they’re in my heart & on my mind.

I thought for today’s blog post, I would share one of these poems with you.

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 its 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)
