I Carry Your Heart With Me

You can kid the world. But not your sister. ~Charlotte Gray

I can not remember a significant event in my childhood, or my younger years without my sister in it. She’s 2 years younger than me. And although we have been living in different countries for too long now, I just can not go by a milestone or experience in my life without telling her about it.

Today on Easter Sunday, my sister turns a year older. I think she’s actually experiencing a personal crisis over this particular birthday whether she admits it or not, but I know for sure, that she’ll overcome it because she’s the most independent capable woman I’ve ever known!

To my sister, I’ve done this before, and I’d like to do this again – dedicate this poem to you. Happy birthday.

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)

    The artistic words you both have make it undeniable that you two are sisters. :)
