i carry your heart with me (i carry it in

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)

The poem made it's debut to me during the movie In Her Shoes. I'd never been crazy about ee cummings...but I thought this was amazing... :)

Watched the movie In Her Shoes last night, although it has been out for a while, it is worth seeing, gives you an eyesight on relationships with sisters. The poem by ee cummings is one of my favorites, great ending to the movie.
