Carrying His heart

I first read this poem several years ago after I was divorced.  I was struggling with the fact that I did not have a life partner who could share this poem with me, because I loved the emotion of the words.  I began to feel sorry for myself.  Right then, I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me, telling me instead of focusing what I don't have, focus on the fact that He is my Husband (Isaiah 54:5).  Ever since then, when I think of this poem, I ask Him to help me carry His 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)
