I Carry Your Heart... {In My Heart}

This is one of my favorite poems. The author is e.e. cummings. I have to admit the first time I heard it was in the movie "In Her Shoes," which told a story of sisterly love. To me, it's a poem that can describe many types of love--that between sisters, lovers and mothers and children. It's that all or nothing love that is with you throughout life's trials and tribulations.  It's the love that makes your stomach hurt and your heart pound because you love someone so much....
 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)
