[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

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 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)
love poem by E.E. Cummings
In the first stanza of this power-filled poem, Cummings speaks about how they are one. He is never alone; she travels with him through the memories he has stored in his heart. She has such control over his heart, that all his actions find its source from her.
As he writes further, he transforms his language into a classic romantic’s. Cummings calls his love his world, and his fate. He doesn’t look at these aspects as a separate concept from her. The poet is so much in love, that he does not fear the fate of life. Further on, he expresses the beauty of his lady love. In his eyes, she is what a moon is always looking for when it moves around the Earth. Moreover, the far-off sun also sings for his love.

In the last few lines, he reveals a secret with romance re-defined. The poet speaks about how no one knows about this secret. He compares his deep-rooted secret with the most blissful of things in life. The secret is beyond the sky, and it bears itself on a tree he calls life. So far, Cummings hid the secret in a place where no mind or soul could find. And the secret is as simple as that: i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
