Rose Petal Lover.

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

Icarry your heart (I carry it in my heart)
E. E Cummings

she wears her heart pinned to her sleeve like delicate lace brooch.
the hopeless romantic in her, lets her heart beat fast and slow to the sound of his voice,
there are footprints up her arm, over her shoulder, down her collarbone, stopping abruptly at her heart
'it's where I keep him' she whispers quietly, with rose pink cheeks.
it's where I keep the special things...the things I love.

  1. You just made me cry *in a good way*
    that's the poem that was read at our wedding and I couldn't find it anywhere - couldn't remember the wording etc.

    Thanks you've made my night xoxo
