A few of my favorite things...

I've never made a real dedicated study of poetry. Most of it mystifies me to be completely honest.  Once in awhile though, I find a poem that spears me right in my heart as words of truth.  They stick in my brain and stay with me!  This has been one of my all time favorite poems for the past 10 years at least.  Enjoy!

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)
