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
I fear no fate
{For you are my fate, my sweet)
I want no world
(For beautiful you are my world, my true)
And you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is
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 thats keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart
[I carry it in my heart}
