all the very best of us string ourselves up for love

i carry your heart with me

i carry it in my heart

i am never without it anywhere

i go you where 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

e e cummings
