i carry your heart with me by e.e.cummings

By Jodee Weiland

One of my favorite poems is by e.e.cummings. I love this poem. I hope you enjoy it as well and share it with someone special. When I think of family, close friends, and memories, this poem comes to mind.

This simple but beautiful poem truly expresses for me what I feel whenever I think of someone I love and care about, and the reason for this is very simple.  I see it as the perfect poem to express my feelings for anyone I truly love because those I love I do carry in my heart and all that touches them touches me as well.  So here it is…I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  If so, share this poem with someone you love today and make a memory.  Enjoy!


e.e. cummings – 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)
