I Carry Your Heart With Me

I heard this poem this weekend in the movie "In Her Shoes" and it is so beautiful I wanted to share it with you all. It reminds me not only of the love I have for my husband...but also the love God has for me! I think it just may be my very favorite poem...


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.
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.
- ee cummings.

Beautiful! We are definitely kindred spirits... i posted a poem too! I love ee cummings. The way you saw it as God's love for you has caused me to "fall in love" with it all over again! Thanks! Can't wait to hear how VBS is going!

This is absolutely beautiful! I may have to print it out and leave it for Oronzo to discover. :)
