The Bond Of Sisters

In the movie “In Her Shoes”, this poem was recited towards the end by Maggie to her sister Rose. It’s a beautiful poem 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 not fate,

for you are my fate, my sweet.

I want no world,

for beautiful, you are my world, my true.

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 keeps the stars apart,

I carry your heart,

I carry it in my heart.
