I Carry Your Heart

0 Comments 09 November 2006 / by

not so long ago, i was asked a simple question by my dear one. he asked me why i love him? without thinking, i thought all the answers i can give cuz i know why truly that i love him. cuz my heart said so. but the answer was so-ever tough cuz i couldn’t express it in words without sounding like i made it up just for the sake of it.

it took me a couple of days later until i can give the answer that satisfies me. but even that, i think it still lacks of something.

and for that i think that’s why it is love. it is something you can’t figure out for sure. it is sometimes out of your logical sense. it is beyond your understanding. it is there cuz you feel it. truly.

couple of days after that i finally saw this movie i’ve been wanting to see for a while. at the end, the main actress read this poem by e. e. cummings to her sister on her wedding day. it was lovely.

too bad i’m no poet. i couldn’t make up those words for you, but you know that’s how i feel.

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

here is the deepest secret no one 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
