I get to be best friends with this cute girl every single day...
...and today she turns twenty!!
Taylor, I heard this poem read on a movie a few weeks ago and it immediately brought you to my mind. You are my friend, my sister, the one I tell all my secrets, the one I trust most. I love you... and I carry your heart with me, my sweet friend.
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)
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)
-'I carry your heart with me,' e.e. cummings
"But Ruth replied, 'Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you.
Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.
Your people will be my people and your God my God.
Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried.
May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely,
if anything but death separates you and me.
When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her,
she stopped urging her."
