sisters. i love you sister. to the one that tugged me along growing up, who wore a swim cap together until we were 18, who takes her coffee a little darker than i, who sits in a room and never mutters a word, but smiles when we catch each other's thought, who tells me when im wrong and why im wrong, who always stands up for me like we share a heart, who tells me when my breath smells and dances with me down the streets of new york, who knows me like the back of my hand though she lives on another coast,  who reminds me of who i am and never to settle for less. 
i can never repay you for what you are to me. i miss you sissy. 

i carry your heart with me

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 the 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.
