A Poem by EE Cummings

I first heard this poem recited by (Cameron Diaz) in the movie "In Her Shoes"
It touched me so deeply, I cried for 2 hours after hearing it.  I had to get a copy
of it to keep.  If you have not seen "In Her Shoes," please make it a point
to see it.  Now, I hope you love this poem by EE Cummings as much as I do.
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 the 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)
