I carry your heart with me

This one’s for you my dear. Und ja, Cameron Diaz bringt es in „In den Schuhen meiner Schwester“ deutlich besser rüber. Aber ich ja auch kein Legastheniker und mein Arsch ist auch eine kleine Nummer größer…

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)

von E.E. Cunnings

  9. I fell in love with this poem when i heard Cameron Diaz recite it in the movie „In Her Shoes“

    it just invoked something within me, the first time i heard it i tried to write the words but didn’t get it all, so the second i had my pen and paper ready but when i heard the author i thought i’ll just google it, and here i am,

    i think this poem will be great as wedding vows

  10. Thank you so much.
    I’ve been searched this poem for all day long. Until I found I spelled the wrong name of the poet. This poem is so touching.
    I saw the movie last night on TV. Then I couldn’t help looking for the poem. I’m so crazy about the poems recited by someone. That feeling is so different from I read it.
    Thank you again.

      Certainly, the answer will be „NO“.

      Here is the deepest secret nobody knows.

      I’m not living yet.
