EE Cummings - i carry your heart

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)

The above poem by ee cummings is very beautiful and means the world to me.
I have many thoughts circling my mind. I have many emotions enveloping my heart.

I was introduced to this poem by a friend because it's an expression I 
often share.  I consider myself unique, just like everyone else in the world. 
I've been in circles with such a huge variety of folks. I've been part of so many 
communities. I thank the Lord and the universe for this.  

Often I meet folks and think I've known them forever. Often I meet someone, share presence and they stay imprinted in my heart. I don't have to know you my entire life or be in your world day 
in and day out to love you and to feel an impact.

My younger days in Queens: Woodside, Flushing & Corona, these are days of old that gave me the chance to meet a wide circle of amazing human beings.  
I remember you.


(I apologize for the crypticness of this post, I'm feeling a bits of ways, it's about loss, it's about 
transformation, growth, evolution and change.)


Sharing is caring.

Respectfully & Sincerely yours,
