I just wanted to let all my friends know that my wonderful hubby, Gordon, is celebrating his birthday today. For those of you who are new to my blog, Gordon has a blog also called “Heavenly Heartburn“. He also has recently been writing a column for Baptist Press Sports. If you have a chance to drop in on him and wish him a Happy Birthday, I know he would appreciate it.
This is for you, Gordon!
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 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.
