Here is the Deepest Secret Nobody Knows...

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Whenever I hold my kids really tight, which is very often, I take very deep breaths, caress their cheeks and breathe in their sweet scent and for some reason I always remember this poem, and everything comes into sense.

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 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)
