This poem is dedicated to the man that warms my heart unlike any other.
Circumstances keep us part but he is and always will be my soul mate. When
I heard this being recited - my first thoughts floated to him and if he had
heard it first - he would have surely done the same. This poem bleeds
true, unconditional love, regardless of cirsumstances.

gitanjali


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)

This is one of the best Poems I read in a long time. When I heard it I
cried. It makes me realize that love and honesty and truth do exsists.

Andrea, from North Carolina, who wrote a lovely heartfelt piece above, on
this poem has further touched me. When I read that Pam actually recited
this poem (not knowing that it was so close to Fred and Andrea's hearts)
and all who shared the experience after Fred's death, I just couldn't
believe it. I am touched deeply. I know that there is an eternal flame
that is in each of our hearts--if we care to share it.

Love to Andrea.

absolutely beautiful poetry, as you, I heard it this afternoon while
watching the movie, In Her Shoes. I write poetry so it instantly caught my
attention. He accomplished what all great art is about, his emotion is
captured in the words so that we also can feel this wonderful emotion.
Bravo to the screenwriter for including this poem in this wonderful movie.
ee cummings deserves to be acknowledged.

My agent Shelley sent this poem to me when my 5 year old girl kitty, Midori
died January 17. Dad went with me to lay her down from sudden cancer in her
stomach. Frost is still here, he was named after The Road Less Taken, by
RFRost. Anywayz. I cc'd Dad the poem after all this to share Shelly's
support for me during Midori's Kitty Hospice:). Dad died suddenly January
30. 2006. This poem by ee was placed at visitation, went with him at
cremetory, and was read agian unknowingly of the connection by the CheiF
(woman! Pam) cardilogy at the work celebration seremony.

My Dad, we built our house on rock.
M&D and I had lunch and outings everyweekend.
Girls of the World, make your realtionships with your parents what you
desire, you can change if you want, just do your best.

We had a great time Dad, and we still are. Cheers to The New World.

Only one word can truly describe this poem... BEAUTIFUL! I, just like the
other 260 people commenting, heard this poem on In Her Shoes.. and I cried
so hard. It reminded me SO much of my 3 sisters, but of my boyfriend as
well. I enjoyed this poem, because it never gave the reader a sense of 2
lovers, family, or friends (characters). I like this, because I can use it
for my 3 sisters.. or I can use it with my boyfriend. I was truly touched
by this poem. I have always like E.E. Cummings and I am so upset that I am
just now getting to know this poem.
