Favorite Love Poems.......... for my Husband

Mine is by EE Cummings.....I read this in High School....we don't discuss exactly how long ago THAT was....but I know it by my soul.....and it speaks to me about all love is.......and today before my husband hung up the phone with me, he did not tell me he loved me....he said "I'm so IN LOVE with you." I started to cry.....and so my love, as you endure your deployment, know that .....

I Carry Your Heart, I Carry It In My Heart......

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 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)

  1. That is a beautiful poem! This one is my favorite and I sent it to my husband, one stanza at a time, when we were dating.

    To My Excellent Lucasia, on Our Friendship

    Katherine Phillips

    I did not live until this time
    Crown'd my felicity.
    When I could say without a crime,
    I am not thine, but Thee.

    This Carcass breath'd, and walkt, and slept,
    So that the World believ'd
    There was a Soul the Motions kept;
    But they were all deceiv'd.

    For as a Watch by art is wound
    To motion, such was mine:
    But never had Orinda found
    A Soul till she found thine;

    Which now inspires, cures and supplies,
    And guides my darkned Breast:
    For thou art all that I can prize,
    My Joy, my Life, my Rest.

    No Bridegrooms nor Crown-conquerors mirth
    To mine compar'd can be:
    They have but pieces of this Earth,
    I've all the World in thee.

    Then let our Flames still light and shine,
    And no false fear controul,
    As innocent as our Design,
    Immortal as our Soul.
