i promise - forevermore
and post notes and photos about your poem like Lu Loo.
This EE Cumming's poem has significant meaning to my sister and I. We love it.
"i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go...."
to: jennifer, my loving sister
i’ve never felt a bond so deep (never, forevermore)
nor have i embraced a shoulder so strong;
-strong enough for me-
but within the dark of the darkest night, before the
brightest star was born,
we were born to love (always, forevermore)
and i shall not betray the trust sisters share;
for we ration laughter when rain falls like rain,
and break bread of bounty when rain brings pain-
i fear not the deepest depth,
nor am i weak with you by my side (eternally, forevermore)
i seek not my vices because of your empathy,
hear not the voices whispering echoes of loss-
for you, my sweet sister, have shown me a path to freedom;
and in the longest walk I’ve ever walked,
the hardest race i’ve ever faced,
you held my hand with ease and comfort,
and i am at a loss for words-
above the highest skies of all royal skies,
i feel the relief from what was and what is to come-
for our friendship shan’t be severed by distance, nor sent away
toward isles too far to sail;
it is content with calm words spoken without judgement,
only with compassion, sympathy and genuine kindness-
before rarity was rare,
a true bond we did share;
and i’ll tell you something no other person can comprehend,
a secret spreading moondust over valleys - valleys made for
- just us-
you are the magic that holds the stars in the dark ebon sky;
the marvel of the universe and
its muse compare not to you-
i shall show gratitude to God for you...
"sisters don't need words...
they have hearts"
