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)

  8. Bailey Frost says:

    This poem shows the conflicts of a loved one who has lost their significant other. The speaker talks about always loving them no matter what problems arise, which in this case would be death. They also state that love is the secret to everything, but nobody really ancknowledges it. That love triumphs over everything and soars even in the toughest of times.
