Poem for Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share this poem with you, my cousin is going to read this one (we think) during our ceremony. we are having a religious ceremony performed by a minister, however we wanted a nice poem to be read during the ceremony. This was the one that Cameron Diaz read in the movie In Her Shoes. Which is a great movie if you haven't seen it, even better book.

 

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)
