Meditation: i carry your 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 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)
~ee cummings
I am trying to carry only good things in my heart and purge the negative and weighty things that have no place there.  Thankfully, it is spring and this is so much easier to do when the sun is shining, birds are singing, daffodils are nodding, and children are laughing as they play outside. Breathe in all that beauty as deeply as possible, then exhale all the pain, worries and frustrations out.  They just kind of dissipate into the spring air.  And tucked away into my little heart is my sweet little girl, and her like-a-rock father.  And there's even more room in there for M and D, and all of you.  What a happy burden that is!

Thank you ee cummings, for your beautiful words that make today so much more wonderful.

I think one of the greatest feelings in life is to read this poem and know who it is about in *your* life.
