I carry your heart.

I don’t believe I have not read the poems of E.E Cummings before. What a terrible waste of all those years.
Fell in love with this instantly.

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)

    Yes, lovely poem :) First heard it recited in a movie. ‘In Her Shoes’ I think.

    Wow! Sounds perfect for wedding vows right? I was wondering if you could help me out with something. Could you drop me an email when u can? Thanks!

  3. Phoenix: Hey, I heard it for the first time in that movie too! I had the good fortune of catching the last 20 minutes of the movie, where the poem was recited by Cameron Diaz. Lovely poem. His other works are pretty interesting as well.

    Wellwisher: Yes, they do sound perfect, for that perfect un-perfect person that one will end up loving and marrying. :) Also, e-mail sent!

    LOL. First thing I did was google the words. They captivated me too :)

    I fell in love with the old man and really thought Cameron was the ultimate WHORE/SLUT/TRAMP/SKANKY HO (plus stupidly illiterate, which didn’t help matters). I wonder how Toni Collette continued the relationship eventually. TOTALLY UNFORGIVABLE.

    (Thank God I’m an only child)
