Another gem .. that i rediscovered in the movie “In Her Shoes” , that i wrote about in my Post “The art of losing”
Maggy (Cameron Diaz ) gifts this to Rose (Toni – her elder sister) on her wedding day. As she reads it out to her , everything that binds the two sisters together , through a troubled childhood and fighting the people that they were and taking pride in what they ‘ ve become – starts to make so much sense.
They stay together . Two people . Very different. Very complete in their own worlds. Together . As one heart.
Would this be the elusive perfection in a relationship?
When two people seem so complete on their own.
But without each other they have no meaning.
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 doneby 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)
