i carry your heart

It's been a weird week (as noted in my last post) and a weird weekend.  How do you stay collected on the 10 year anniversary of a tragedy? 

I have things I want to share with the blog world, things that I have yet to post.  But those things can wait for tomorrow.  Because today, I just breathe in and pray.  I pray a prayer of peace, of mourning, of remembering, but mostly of love. 

The following is my favorite poem.  It came to me as I sat down to write this.  I think it's on days like today that I think we do carry each other in our hearts, with the many people we do and do not know.  So here you go.  And know, that I carry YOUR heart in my heart today as well.

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)
