This is truly a beautiful poem. It broke my heart as it made me yearn for
the time when I carried my spouse in my heart (perhaps I still do) but he
no longer carries my heart in his. My soul aches.

I heard this poem for the first time tonight on a movie called 'In Her
Shoes" ... it brought tears to my eyes as it made me think of my boyfriend
who is away working right now. This moved me deeply.

I'm so glad I finally found this poem n glad to c that there are people out
there who feel the same way I do about it...It reaches out from the very
depth of my soul...I feel overwhelmed everytym I think about or hear this
poem.It is that emotion I(we) find difficult to express in words...

This poem is the first i had heard of ee cummings. From a film of all
places, but it is a poem which i now hold dear. Such a small but meaningful
poem

I have to analyze this poem for a class exposition and the only thing i can
say is that is incredible the way in which he expresses his love, to a
man, woman, brother, sister..or to a death person, this is incredible and
in my view something difficult to obtain. This is the secret.
Sorry for my english...! kisses from Spain.

I have loved this poem since the first time that I heard it and I am going
to have it read at my Mothers funeral next week so all who are there will
truly know how much I loved her and what she and her life have meant to me.
My Mother was truly an inspiration as she fought medical issues and
paralization she remained compassionate, humorous, genenerous and always
loving. For these things I will be forever grateful to her. I must also
thank the author for allowing the deep emotion to be shared with others!!

the words of ee cummings were like an embrace,both given and received.my
heart is filled with loved one's hearts that may be at arm's reach,across
the miles or no longer within my grasp..my heart is full and that's a
blessing
