Thoughtful Thursday: 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 growshigher 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

Do you carry someone's heart with you? Even a piece of their heart? Is your heart connected to others with strands of love that time and distance and differences cannot break? Even though you are not near them, you know that you are still together in spirit.

Here's to those whom I carry in my heart.
