I CARRY YOUR HEART WITH ME
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 )
