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.

I love poems but this is exceptional.Nearly five years ago I lost my
younger brother, he was only 20years.We were the best of friends. Life is
not been the same without him. When I saw the movie "In Her Shoes",I
thought of him.The poem gives me comfort in my heart whenever I read it.
Thanks E.E. Cummings.

This poem is absoluetly beautiful. I read a lot of poetry, but I have never
read a poem that has touched all these people, or a poem that this many
people can relate to. It defines the beauty, and also the hurt of love
perfectly. It's awsome how it can apply to all kinds of love, not just
romantic love. e.e. cumming's was a genius. I'm so glad that I have read
this poem, I know I will remember it for the rest of my life! my favorite
line is: "and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart" Every time
I read it I get shivers and it's a realization for me on how powerful love
is.

My daughter died 10 years ago, she was 23 and my best friend. When this
poem was read in the film "In Her Shoes," I immediately thought of her. It
depicts exactly how I feel about her. I was never able to express it so
deeply and profoundly. I am not a poetry person. I never, ever memorized a
poem before but I looked up the poem on the website and memorized every
word. I repeat it daily. It is the most tender and beautiful expression
of love that anyone could ever express. Thank you EE Cummings. I am sure
to read more of your poems.

I knew this poem watching the movie "In her shoes"... I think it is the
most beautiful and the deepest poem I ever known in my life. It's so
touching, when I realised, I was crying...
Every real person, who has real problems in life is touched by this
wonderful poem.. I was

I heard this poem for the first time on Saturday, I rented thr movie In Her
Shoes, It opened my heart, to the love i have for my children, The words
are very touching, and very true, if you have someone special in you life,
But I am very lucky to have five very special Daughters, in mine, I am
sending this poem to all, because it really, tells just how I feel about
them,
Thank You E.E. CUMMINGS, I will always Carry there hearts in mine !

This poem was reproduced by a musician named Michael Hedges. It is a
beautiful rendition of this poem. I highly suggest it.
