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)

It’s alive.
And it’s always changing and never changing and still keeping the stars apart.
All that to say, i carry your heart.

I asked God for community here. I am certainly not getting it the way I though, but slowly, I see it forming around me. It is requiring a part of me that I don’t give naturally. This isn’t bad. It is a little hard, though.

Nothing in my life is real simple.

But, then again, everything is.

Something Missing

I know exactly what’s missing from my life right now.

I just need to start praying for it.

I will write something more substantial later. But, here’s this song I like.
