Sometimes I wonder if you remember that I always carry your heart with me:
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)
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 with me(i carry it in my heart)
You know if you asked me to pull the moon down from the sky I would do my best do it and you know that if the weight of it pulled my arms out of their sockets I wouldn’t let go unless I was convinced you were satisfied.
When you dance in the fire you do all sorts of screwy things. Sometimes they are the most beautiful and stunning things a person can imagine and sometimes they are just plain stupid.
A Woman’s Tears
A little boy asked his mother
“Why are you crying?”
“Because I’m a woman”,
she told him.
“I don’t understand”,
His mum just hugged him
and said, “And you never
Later the little boy asked
his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for
“All women cry for no reason”,
was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man,
still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to God; and when God got on
the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so
“When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the
world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and
the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going
when everyone else gives up, and take care of her
family through sickness and fatigue without
complaining. .I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under
any and all circumstances, even when her child has
hurt her very badly. I gave her strength to carry her man through his
faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his
heart. I gave her wisdom to know that a good man never
hurts his woman, but sometimes tests her strengths and
her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her
hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart – the place
where love resides.
I have shown you the soft underbelly and shared my demons with you. You are more in my eyes than you ever realize. Doesn’t matter if we are 5, 19, 45 0r 95. It is just how it is.
I know when your walls are up and when they are down. I know when the love flows freely and when it is more restrained.
But mostly I know that if we hold hands and work this time together that never ending moment is ours for the taking. And to think it started with one kiss.
