I do believe that (if someone were to read me this poem)It just might be
the most touching and sweetest thing (i have ever heard)

Are there any words sufficient enough to explain how wonderful this poem
is? It depicts love from every angle and surface, reaches into the depths
of your heart and gives you a way to exress your undying love for another.
Not only for a lover, but the love for a child, a friend, parent, or
sibling. It causes us to cry with sadness, as well as laugh with happiness
in the same moment. There are few who can say they don't understand the
meanng of this poem.

When I heard this poem for this time, I started to cry because I knew one
day my 1 year old daughter will read this poem and know exactly I feel
about her.

Yes I just go finished watching "In Her Shoes" what a beautiful poem I had
to stop it and get the name of the poem and then I waited until it was over
and during the credits got the rest of ee cummings info.......This was a
beautiful poem for any loving situation!!!!!

I've been living in United States for the past 4 years and being far way
from my sister in Brazil have been very painful. When I was watching the
movie "In Her Shoes" at the part that the actress reads this poem, really
made me cry. It's very hard to express by words what's a true and a pure
love. It's almost impossible to describe such feeling through words.
Definitively "I carry your heart with me" is the most touchble poem that I
never ever read.

Think about the poem not only for the love in a passionate way but the love
of a parent, I put this poem into a letter for my dad telling him how much
i really loved him. And when he read it, that was the first time i saw him

I guess we all decided to watch In Her Shoes this week...

E.E Comings poems is one that perfectly puts into words the emotions felt
when your hearts skips a beat at the sight of a certain person, or when you
yearn to be with someone JUST to be in their presence, or even the simple
feeling you get in your gut when you discover that HE is the one....

E. E. Comings perfectly defined love... Brilliant

This is possibly one of the most beautiful poems ever written by one of
the greatest American poets who ever lived.

It is emotionally stunning, simple and pure- and very very emotional.
So beautiful !

This poem carries such beauty. I heard it last night whilst watching 'In
her shoes', it seems to express every emotion possible is just a few lines.
I am totally in love with a man that has no idea how i feel, this just
sums my feelings completely-I wish i could tell him how i feel. For now it
has to be my secret.
