I Carry Your Heart

by Gypsy Blue Rose

If You Would Like To Join the Japanese Poetry Club, please check my author notes

I carry your heart 
with me wherever I go. 
You’re my moon and sun, 
my infinite tree of life. 
Everything I do, 
I do with you, my darling, 
for you are my eyes 
to see whatever I must. 
I carry you in my heart.

CHOKA-It's a Japanese court poetic form of the 6th to 14th century consisting of nine-lines in a 5/7/5/7/5/7/5/7/7 syllables pattern and may be repeated. Originally, CHOKA was written in 100 sets. It was composed mainly to commemorate life events. for examples and more information from the Poets Collective CLICK HERE
Inspired by [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in] BY E. E. CUMMINGS

(format and punctuation are original as the poet intended)
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 itâ??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)
