Valentine for My Family

i carry your heart with me

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)

This post is so personal. I love it and know how much it means for you to share it with us. I love my tattoo and love yours and the meaning behind what you did as you shared it with me once. I would assume all that have them have a story behind it. I have been thinking a lot about heaven the past couple days. Always something
new on my mind.
Am praying you both have a special day on Sunday, you are in our hearts. Love Nick and Sharon
