For My Dear Sister

Diane and Debbie 1975
I carry your heart
(I carry it in my heart)
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
I fear no fate, for you are my fate, my sweet
I want no world, for beautiful you are my world, my
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 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
