i fear no fate

Last night as I was packing some stuff away (you know-because I'm actually going to get a house, like a real honest to goodness house house) I came across the shadow box that I made for Mark for our 6 mo. anniversary. Yes I know, go ahead and gag at the thought of a 6 mo. anniversary. Ok, so anyways-in it was a poem that I fell in love with. It's beautiful and expressive and I wish that I could write in such a way. Now I wish I could say that I'm just that kind of gal that reads poetry to feed my creative soul, but no I stole it from the book, "In Her Shoes." I guess I just have to say at least I didn't get it from the movie.

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)
-e.e. cummings
