Love Expressed . . .

i carry your heart with me
e.e. cummings

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 language of love
was never the worse
for some overstatement.
-Antonio Machado


Early in the morning 
my hand reaches out
to find you gone, or
sometimes purring still,
all warm and cozy, 
having slept the sleep
of angels.

But then at night
we know, 
we cannot sleep so well
without the other
curled up beside; 
long-married-love
does see us through.
-Shirley Ann

  1. In the whole world there is nothing more wonderful...
    then to find a faithful woman
    who loves you
    and is always there for you.
    Shirley, you are my everything.
    Thank you for your poetic thoughts
    and for your faithful love.
    Happy Valentines Day.
