liberating a captive soul


Almost two years ago my significant other of 20 years was diagnosed with
dementia. At first I was allowed to visit him but as time progressed his
children placed him with a care giver and with his ex wife in a place near
the beach. I am glad he is near the beach, I share his love of the water,
but I am no longer allowed to see him because it upsets his ex wife because
she is still in love with him after more than thirty years of being apart.
His children allow no contact between the two of us. If he speaks up it is
seen as confusion on his part and I am seen as a threat to the relationship
between he and his ex wife and the imaginary reunification of their family
after many years. I had conversations with him when I was still allowed to
see him and he assured me this was not an arrangement he wanted. However,
it has come about and, I feel, he is somewhat imprisoned by his children
and ex wife. I continue my life, my career, and my travels because we were
never married I have no legal rights to request any contact. He has short
term memory loss and some mild confusion but is still much the same other
than that. The poem expresses so much of how I feel about his situation. He
no longer has the freedom to travel with me nor does he have the ability to
go places he wants on his own. So I feel on some soulful level he travels
with me because I carry his heart in my heart and it is my only connection
with him. The poem brings tears to my eyes whenever I read it. I wish I
could send a copy to him to read also. I hope he knows I carry his heart in
my heart.

i carry your heart with me

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)
