I Carry Your Heart

This is dedicated to my daughter – I will always love you, Laura. Laura

Time nor distance nor vile words from small minded people who misunderstand sacrifical love cannot quench my maternal heart toward you, no matter our ages. I love you, sweetheart. 

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

carry your hearti 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)

Cells from the mother also cross to the fetus and remain. Read more at: Mother and Child Linked at Cellular Level
