I Carry Your Heart With Me

i carry your heart with me
i carry it in my heart

I Carry Your Heart With Me

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

by E.E. Cummings

Why is this one of my favorite poems? I’m a hopeless romantic and I do wish to read a long poem/love letter at my wedding. Seeing this movie made the possibility more real and this poem jumped out at me. I admit I bought more volumes of e.e cummings works just looking for this poem. Its elegant, its romantic and you feel like he could be writing it to anyone including myself. I share with you and the universe one of my favorite poems ever.

P.S: It’s also a good movie but I admit I’ve never read the book.
