I CARRY YOUR HEART WITH ME


By E. E. Cummings

 


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
