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 )
