My Love

For such sadness...
there is only my offering of love,
only my prayers that some small finger of light
gently touch what is so raw and hurting...

I ask that I have the courage
to open my heart
and again, and again
and choose love,
always love...
that I let hate and anger go
over the cliff side into that vast ocean
that holds what I can not...
Let me choose love
and if I must have anger,
may it be fuel for the torch of my love
that burns so fierce and so bright
at the center,
at the very core
of my entire being...


My love and prayers to the families
and community of Newtown, Connecticut and to all of us who circle them.

I haven't been able to get this poem off of my mind for two days now.

i carry your heart by e. e. cummings

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 ~

Yes we must love and love and love even when the heart is so shocked and oh so heavy. Thank you.
