I Carry Your Heart With Me

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 the 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)

  4. Aw, I love this! I really do love poetry, but my favorite are the ones that make sense right away. Everyone can understand or even relate. I'm not so big on the "what exactly do this MEAN?" type of poems. haha

  5. I love this poem--I'd never heard/read it until I saw the movie "In Her Shoes," when the Cameron Diaz character reads it to her sister--made me cry!
