I looove this poem so much. It is semi reminiscent ( to me at least ) of
you being in love... (XII). It is so entirely beautiful and honest and
truthful. I want to read this at my Wedding, or something.

I guess people read this and the majority have a romantic reaction to it.
But every time I read this poem , or hear it spoken, I think of my sister.
This poem expresses best, the closeness that she and I will forever share.
She is truly with me, everywhere I go.

I will print this poem & have one of my sons read it at either mine or my
husbands funeral. It is the way I will say my final good-byes.

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...
