I too have seen the movie "In Her Shoes" (about 10 times) and each time it
gets to me. I love the poem and how it stirs your soul. I recently
watched the movie again when i was going through turmoil in my relationship
with my boyfriend and it made me realise just how much i treasure him. I
think that the poem would make excellent wedding vows and i certainly would
use them (if that even happens). The poem is extremely beautiful and has a
positive affect on thoes who read or hear it.

My husband is in the army and is currently deployed to Iraq. This poem
really touched me. It made me think of him and my father who passed away in
2004. Things like this really help me get by.

I saw the movie, In Her Shoes, it really touched me. I lost my Sister,
Terry a year ago. She was very dear to me. You never know how much you
truly love someone until you lose them. This movie truly touched my soul.
If only I could of had that chance to tell her "I Carry Your Heart, I Carry
It In My Heart.

After sifting through all 400+ comments, only 2 comments actually managed
to properly analyze the poem. About 50% of comments were about a movie, and
another 49% were about some dead person or a husband/wife...Yeesh. To
repeat what others have said here it is.

The striking thing about the poem and the way it is (and should be read) is
that the idiosyncratic punctuation is part of its message. The conceit that
one can carry another's heart in one's heart is reinforced by the
juxtaposition of the lines.

GerBear from United States
Here are the definitions for this guys answer, since obviously he used a
thesaurus to write a comment :p
idiosyncratic - Odd, personalized, peculiar, eccentric and often out of
conceit - an elaborate poetic image or a far-fetched comparison of very
dissimilar things
juxtaposition - the combining of improbable elements in close proximity to
each other.

In this poem we can detect two sections which are complementary: the part
in the brackets underlines the semplicity of his feelings, explaining them
with colloquial images; the other seems more essential. There is not
physical descpription, so it could be addressed not only to a woman, but
also to a beloved person. It is a love poem, which deals with pure and
universal love, because it could be applied to every circumstance. We like
it very much. We are going to read it at Anna's marriage.
