Oh how I love this poem! And the true inner meaning of love..carrying it
where ever you go. No matter how far holding it as one. And soon becoming
together to love and be as one. This is an all time favorite!! The bonding
and coming close is such a nice and touching truth beneath...

I have always loved this poem. It's universal. Straight from the heart and
can be adapted for a friend, family member, or signifigant other. Pledging
to someone that no matter where you go or what you do they are never far
from the very root of yourself. That because of the bond that you have with
this person they will forever be carried with you in heart and in mind.
Such an excellent writer.

The amount of comments posted over this poem is amazing. I, too, am a fan
of this poem. It's simple, delivered form of saying how special someone is
to someone else is touching. For those people who commented earlier on how
they couldn't understand what the poem meant; I believe they are just
looking too hard. Not everything needs to be analyzed to death. Just take
the words for what they are saying. If you are lucky enough to feel
something special when you hear it, you have been blessed.

THIS POEM IS THE EPITOME OF DECLARING LOVE. I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY
OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT. I READ IT TO MY WIFE AT HER FUNERAL AND STILL
LOVE HER DEARLY

i heard this poem for the first time from my favourite movie of all time,
"Candy." If you haven't seen it you should definitely watch. It stars the
late Heath Ledger(my favorite actor)

i have never liked poetry nor tried to understand it, but this is one poem
that captivated my heart, and i will always carry it in my heart.at that
moment i heard it being read by cameron Diaz, i knew that is how i felt
about my mother and that wherever she goes or whatever happens to her or me
"I WILL ALWAYS CARRY HER HEART IN MINE" it has never been easier to say
your true feelings in a more poignant way and for that i thank EE
cummings!!!!!
