i carry your heart

As I mentioned, my Olive necklace needs to be redone as the name on the back is wrong. So no photo yet. But I’ll give to a little inside info on what it says, as i’ve been carrying the words around with me for a few days. The funeral that the link from my last post came from also featured a quote from a poem. Which, it turned out, was from the same poem that is on the necklace i’m waiting for.
It’s generally a romantic love poem, but who defines love, really? So i went with it.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

I hope sooner than later that’s the purest truth. At this point i’m still also carting around the grief and the disappointment and the reality and the sadness and the loneliness of losing something that shared your physical space and well, i could go on.

Good days and bad days. good and bad.

but one day i hope – not too long from now, it will just be the heart – the pure love, the joy that came with the hope of things yet to pass that stays with me.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

    Beautiful. And, yes, I think in time you get to keep the love and the joy, but the pain is lighter–never gone, but light enough that you can bear to carry it around forever. Thinking of you.

  2. I’ve been out of touch awhile, but just read of your sad news on Sprogblogger’s blog. I am so so so very sorry. I want to hold your hand or give you a hug or run interference to keep the unknowing from asking annoying questions. I love the poem you mentioned. There’s a beautiful version of it in a song that has been a favorite of mine for years- “I carry your heart” by Geg Greenway. I tear up whenever I hear it, the sentiment is so powerful and real. Much love to you and your family.

  3. I love that poem and that line especially. I haven’t thought of it in a long time but it’s so perfect in a situation like this.
    Hugs to you. Hope today is a good day (or at least not too bad).
