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)

Personalized Children's Books

Picture Me Press is a great place to make a personalized book for your youngster.  My little one's Aunt got her one of these and has a picture of her dressed as a bee, a bunny, and a bear.  It's about the cutest thing you'll ever see and great fun for her as she flips through all the colorful pages.

They also have a variety of holiday books to personalize as well as scrapbooks and interative books.  If you're looking for something different for a birthday or the holidays, this is the perfect gift and keepsake.
