To My Valentine

The first time I ever heard the poem "[i carry your heart with me (i carry it in]" by e.e. cummings, Jason and I were at a wedding in Florida.  I was just a few weeks pregnant (no one knew but us at the time), which looking back makes it even more memorable.

A friend of the bride got up and read this poem during the ceremony, and I was immediately in tears.  I think it is one of the sweetest, most heartfelt, and beautiful love poems I have ever read, and I'd like to share it with all of you this Valentine's Day.

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)

No one says it better than E. E. Cummings.
