Blinger Year

I tell you what...this has been a rough year.  Perhaps I ought to change the name of this blog from "merrily as we go" to simply "onward we go"... lol.  We are missing the presence of those who have gone...  In addition, we bear little wounds, from battle and other, that don't mend... (It just hit me...the new blog name could be "Limping Along" Must laugh.)

Meanwhile, I thought I'd post this poem.  I once scrawled it on a piece of paper for my late Mema, so many years ago.  It's applicable when missing Those Who are Gone.

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)

- e. e. cummings ~
