I carry the last part of “I carry your heart with me (i carry it in” by E.E. Cummings handwritten on the back of a pic I cherish in my purse. Every person interprets a poem the way he/she carries it in his/her own heart. Every time I miss my love, I reach out for this last part; e.e.cummings’ wording is so delicate that you could almost feel him carrying a small heart in his hands; and then you can’t help but fall in love with his finale.
Simply the most beautiful expressive metaphor of love in the world …
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
