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)
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)

When you find a Love that lets you get mushy in the same way as this poem, DON’T EVER LET GO.
When you find someone who can hold your hand, make you hopeful even when there are fears for the future, DON’T LET GO.
When you find a Love that lets you get geeky, let’s you have moments together that literally make you snort, makes 10 AM- 10 PM feel like an hour, and generally just gives you an over-all feeling of comfortable togetherness, NEVER, EVER LET GO.
I’m thankful, so thankful that such a Love exists in my life right now. And this Valentine’s Day, I celebrate that Love. I give thanks for that Love. Any excuse to celebrate Love is good enough for me. 😉
On February 14, let’s all revel in the Love. Let’s celebrate Love in all its mushy glory. Let’s all carry (his) heart in our hands, and wear our hearts on our sleeves. ❤
