The Story Behind the Name

My favorite poem by E.E. Cummings happens to be incredibly fitting for my work. Whether you are purchasing breastmilk or cremains, let me hold your heart so you can carry theirs.

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

By E.E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it inmy 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 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)
