I Carry Your Heart With Me

When I first heard this poem I immediately thought of my late father (Allah yarhamuhu) and dedicated it to him and all those closest to my heart. Today, I dedicate it to our beloved Sammar (Allah yarhamuha), to her parents (may Allah's sakeenah descend on their hearts and ease their suffering), and to all those for whom Sammar's friendship and affection meant much more than just a passing memory.
May Allah bless us all with His infinite rahmah and ridah.

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)

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)
