For a Prince and his Princess...

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 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)

Congrats, Jeff and Nina, two of the loveliest people I have the pleasure of knowing. Live long, love much, but most of all be happy.

    Psyche... I am touched, humbled, and at a loss for words. This is beautiful, thank you. ee cummings is my favorite, and I love this poem, it's perfect. And your reading is amazing. I am so happy that we have become such close friends, and I treasure you and our friendship.

    Again, thank you my sweet.

    Love always,
