I Carry Your Heart With Me Poem

By E. E. Cummings

“I Carry Your Heart with Me” as a Representative of Love: As a love poem, it shows the true nature of love. The poet expresses his deepest and intense emotions for his beloved. He says that wherever he goes he is accompanied by his beloved, and nothing can separate them. For him, his beloved is his whole universe.

I Carry Your Heart With Me Poem Lyrics

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 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).
