a poem for you to experience

i have so much going on in my head that i would love to write, but so little time. until i have some time to think, write, and savor the keys on my laptop i will share with you one of my absolute favorite poems that you may or may not know. it brings me to tears every time i see it, hear it, feel it, or read it. i hope that you grow to love it as much i do for it brings me so much joy......

i carry your heart with me

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)

maybe i will write like cummings and disdain the use of capitols and punctuation

of course that assumes that i will be disciplined enough to sit down everyday and actually write
