i carry your heart with me

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)


Although I always carried my son's heart with me when he was here on Earth, it has a new meaning, but somehow the same, now that he is in Heaven. I love you my sweet Wesley xoxo

Thank you for sharing this poem. It really speaks to how I feel too.
How are you doing? I know- stupid question - but you can say here all the things you can't say to everyone else when they ask you that question.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.

Thank you cmarie and crisa. I am doing, that is about all. Some days are better than others, as I am sure you can attest to. I found my lovely Wesley on the morning of Saturday, May 26, 2012. He had hanged himself in his closet in my home. Wes was 23 and had just recently moved back home to get back on his feet. He had never expressed any feelings of depression or sadness, ever, so I was absoultely blindsided. I feel grateful to have found this site and a couple on Facebook where others are in the same boat as me and are able to relate and understand the incredible pain of losing a loved one this way.

I read your wors, and my heart swells with the knowing. I am so very sorry.
It gets different I promise. It eases.

And you know that "doing" is fine - right? That is all you have to do. Get through each moment of each day and on to the next. One day, you will surprise yourself, and found that you done just a little bit more.

I am glad you have found support. Take care.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.
