For Valentine’s Day: i carry your heart with me by E.E. Cummings

[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)

While this beautiful E.E. Cummings poem is about the intimate unity of the lover for his beloved, Love after Love, by Derek Walcott, resonates deeply when you first acknowledge yourself, the basis for a healthy loving relationship.

    “i carry my heart with me” is one of the most romantic poems. I have been a fan of e.e. cummings since college days. Add Emily Dickinson to that love affair. She is also quite a brilliant poet. 🙂
