Because every baby needs a poem

The poem that makes me think of Walker and one that will most likely always make me think of my kids (plural as in future), is E. E. Cummings "I Carry Your Heart With Me".

I Carry Your Heart With Me

I carry your heart with me 
(I carry it in my heart)
I am never with out it
(Anywhere I 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

-E.E. Cummings

I love you so much, Walkie.
