Famous Love Poem

I Carry Your Heart With Me By e.e. cummings

Edward Estlin Cummings (1894 - 1962) was a famous American Poet with an unusual style of writing. His name is frequently written in lowercase, e.e. cummings, and his poetry is probably best known for his unorthodox usage of both capitalization and punctuation, in which unexpected and seemingly misplaced punctuation sometimes interrupt sentences and even individual words.

Motherhood, the truest forever love. Though my children are gone and many, many miles from me, I carry them in my heart... and that is why this poem speaks to me.

I Carry Your Heart With Me

By

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)

My husband of 52 years has suffered two heart attacks and one heart episode. This poem spoke to me as we have lived with his condition and I feel I have carried his heart in my heart. I plan to have it read when and if he goes before me at his celebration of life.
