At Long Last

I am back from lovely Oak Island, North Carolina.

Where it was warm enough to stick your piggy toes in the sand and enjoy God’s beautiful creation.

And gawk at the lucky little beach houses in a lovely rainbow of colors.

But mostly, I enjoyed the company . . .
Because, you see, I have these two boyfriends.

And it is true love.

And I dare say that the love is mutual.

And deep. And everlasting.

To my dearest A and B:

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.)

. . .
And it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

. . .
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart: I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

-e.e. cummings


  1. Oh I love that poem! It is in the book/movie “In Her Shoes” and I cried when her sister read that poem in the movie. You are lucky to have these two special boys in your life. And the beach pictures made me miss the beach… (my parents use to live at the beach!)

  2. holy cow!! I’m going to Oak island in two weeks! We rented a beach house for Easter w/ Adam’s FAmily. Random.
