    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)

In one of the stars, I shall be living.
In one of them, I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night.

Hi Trish!

I'm so glad you enjoy this beautiful piece as much as I do.  It was one of the wedding readings when my niece and her husband got married last year.  When I read it again recently, I realized how perfect it is for those of us here who miss our best friends.  ee cummings is one of my all time favorite writers, and this piece is definitely at the top of my "ee cummings" list.

Because T.J. was and is "The Heart of My Heart," this old favorite of mine has more meaning than ever for me.  I just had to reply to 'bump" it to the first page.
