    “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)”
    E.E. Cummings

    E.E. Cummings
    “love is thicker than forget
    more thinner than recall
    more seldom than a wave is wet
    more frequent than to fail

    it is most mad and moonly
    and less it shall unbe
    than all the sea which only
    is deeper than the sea

    love is less always than to win
    less never than alive
    less bigger than the least begin
    less littler than forgive

    it is most sane and sunly
    and more it cannot die
    than all the sky which only
    is higher than the sky”

    “let it go -- the
    smashed word broken
    open vow or
    the oath cracked length
    wise -- let it go it
    was sworn to

    let them go -- the
    truthful liars and
    the false fair friends
    and the boths and
    neithers -- you must let them go they
    were born
    to go

    let all go -- the
    big small middling
    tall bigger really
    the biggest and all
    things -- let all go
    so comes love”
    E.E. Cummings

    “Anybody can learn to think, or believe, or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel... the moment you feel, you're nobody ― but-yourself ― in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else ― means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.”

    E.E. Cummings
    “it may not always be so; and i say
    that if your lips, which i have loved, should touch
    another's, and your dear strong fingers clutch
    his heart, as mine in time not far away;
    if on another's face your sweet hair lay
    in such a silence as i know,or such
    great writhing words as, uttering overmuch,
    stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;

    if this should be, i say if this should be-
    you of my heart, send me a little word;
    that i may go unto him, and take his hands,
    saying, Accept all happiness from me.
    Then shall i turn my face,and hear one bird
    sing terribly afar in the lost lands.”
    E.E. Cummings

    E.E. Cummings
    “somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
    any experience, your eyes have their silence:
    in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
    or which i cannot touch because they are too near

    your slightest look easily will unclose me
    though i have closed myself as fingers,
    you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
    (touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose

    or if your wish be to close me, i and
    my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
    as when the heart of this flower imagines
    the snow carefully everywhere descending;

    nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
    the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
    compels me with the colour of its countries,
    rendering death and forever with each breathing

    (i do not know what it is about you that closes
    and opens; only something in me understands
    the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
    nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands”
    E.E. Cummings, Selected Poems
