I carry your heart with me

D and I are still undecided on exactly what we want our ceremony to look like, so we haven't decided yet if we are going to be having any of our friends or family members do any readings for us. There really aren't many people we have left to honor, anyway—just about all of our good friends and close family are members of our wedding party already! But if we do decide that we want just a little more heft in the ceremony itself, we will definitely be including this piece from my favorite poet.

I carry your heart with me, by E. E. Cummings

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)
