Inspired by ee cummings


I will carry you with me
as I move through life.
Whatever is done by me,
is your doing.
You have inspired me,
believed in me,
helped me
grow
in this profession:
my life.
I will carry you with me,
and I thank you.

...then again, who has not been influenced by those who has inspired us?

I like your version as it relays a strong sense of...urgency buried under your words of emotion.

I like this..it's direct, stark, to the point, doesnt hide behind vague descriptions of wotnot, is cross-cultural, universal...in other words, a classic. Mind if I quote you someplace someday? :)

stan laurel said...

of course...thank you for the kind words.

Calliopia said...

:) May I add you to my blogroll?

stan laurel said...

yes you may...thank you for asking so nicely.
