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 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)

[i carry your heart with me(I carry it in] –e. e. cummings

    And the pic of you with Katie? Beautiful.

    One of my favorite poems, remeber when Cameron Diaz reads it for her sister in "In Her Shoes"? A true "moment"
    Oh Nic how beautiful Katie is, her smile, that gorgeous costume, the curls high on her head. *sigh* it's now that I miss the "idea" of a little girl!!! Wow! Her recital looked like it went so well!

    Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pictures with us! *love*

  21. So sweet.

  22. There is so much beauty and preciousness in this post I almost can't stand it :) Your photos have so beautifully captured the sense of wonder in her little face.

    And the pictures of her with you and with Craig? Those are priceless.

  25. Jaime ainsleylynn.blogspot.com

    That is an adorable costume. I'm writing about my daughter's recital tomorrow.

    This post made me tear up, Ainsley left yesterday for a week with my mother and my heart is aching – I miss her so much. It's so unbelievably quiet in my world without her soft little voice. This poem is exactly how I feel.

    Great pics.

  26. Evonne theumbels.com

    Sweetness overload! She is just precious!

  27. OMGosh those pictures are priceless! What an adorable ballerina!! The pictures captured the words seamlessly!

  29. julie gardner juliecgardner.com

    No words for how lovely I think this is.

    You, her, e.e. cummings…

    All of it.

    Just perfect.
