I first heard this poem in the movie In Her Shoes. It reminds me of the
special bond my brother and me share. We are best friends, we laugh, we
fight, but in the end he's always with me and I'll always stick with him.
This poem is stunning because of the portrayal of love, it can be veiwed as
a romantic love or as a love for one's own family. Cummings awed me with
this poem.

this is one of the most romatic poem I have ever heard. and it always
remind me about my lovely mother and my wife to be.And the last lines are
simply great. Well i think anyone who read this poem will remember in his
dream about the person he love most.

I read "In Her Shoes", and watched it, too, and I can see a lot of
similarities between Rose and Maggie, and my sister and I. I think the bond
of sisterhood is to be treasured and held dear always, so this poem is just
perfect for our special bond. It is a beautiful, expressive poem that will
always remind me of my lovely, difficult, beautiful sister! xxx love you

i am so touched by this poem because it seems that i am having a
heart-to-heart talk to my lover. frankly speaking, i am a gay. being a gay
isn't accepted by most of people in my country. maybe my lover will be
forced to get married with a woman he doesn't love. we both don't dare to
come out of the closet. even though we'll never live together as couple,
this poem expresses what i want to say to him. 'no matter what, i won't
give you any pressure because of our love.' finally i should say thank you,
cummings, for telling me what true love is, for giving me such an
inspiration. thanx again.

I just finished watching "in her shoes" I replayed the movie to catch the
name of the poet I do not read poetry as it goes but I felt I had to have a
copy of this poem to give to ("my BEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD we
laugh,cry,s..,and parent partners MY HUSBAND") the poem moved me so much
(in the movie and in real life) I could relate so much to the worlds used
to express emotion and feelings thank you very much to the poet for
creating and writing the poem and to the movie most of all because if I had
not seen the movie well I think I have said enough
THANKS AGAIN SAM X

When I a first read this poem, my mind thought of my grandfather who died
three years ago, I realized how much I missed him. It explains the wonders
that was shared amoung two people. since than my heart has carried his
heart every where I go.I now carry this poem every where in my mind, heart
and my spirit. Thank You e.e. cummings

I love this poem. My husband, bestfriend, partner and father of my
children died Aug.04 and we are planting a tree in his honor and I plan to
use this poem on the plaque under the tree. Thank you e.e. commings-I will
always carry his heart in mine.

I just watched "In her shoes" and cried at the end when this poem was read.
Not only for what it stood for in the movie but for how touching it is. I
am getting married soon and will be writing my own vows. Of which I will
choose to read this one. I have written a lot of poetry over the years,
but nothing fits the way this one does. I am going to read more of EE
Cummins poetry.
