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 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)

This is a beautiful poem about everlasting love. Probably one of the best I’ve ever read. It is unlike the common love poem with its clichés and red roses. Personally Love poetry impacts me more because I could understand it a bit more. In this poem we don’t know anything about the two sides; the speaker or her/his love. We don’t know if its someone that the speaker longs to be with or someone whom he has a relationship with, but yet through the wonderful comparisons that the speaker makes about his love we know for sure that this is true love. “I carry your heart…I carry it in my heart” is trying to explain that he or her have loved this other person to the point where both of their souls have formed one. That everything he does or wherever he is at, his love is also there doing the same. And because of true love, the speaker has no fears and goes on living knowing that his love is there. No matter what happens, his faith is this love. What the speaker use to see as beautiful and unexplainable such as the moonlight and the sun, have more true meaning know that he feels love. All beautiful feelings that the world use to bring became one that is engulfed by his feeling of love.
