i heard this poem while watching in her shoes and i went cold, it is so
deep (which usually i am most certainly not!!)its not often something
touches my heart but this had me welling up, i am getting married myself in
july and have asked my head bridesmaid to read it at my wedding, it says
what i want to say but dont know how, the most beautiful poem i ever heard!

IT IS POETRY LIKE THIS THAT SHOULD FORM THE BASIS OF ANY ENGLISH COURSE!
ITS SO SIMPLE, YET PROFOUND. I THINK IT IS A WORK OF ART THAT CAN BE
APPRECIATED BY ANYONE. I TOO SAW THE MOVIE AND JUST HAD TO GOOGLE IT! IT
HAS CERTAINLY REAWAKENED A DESIRE TO READ SOME POETRY

I like many others heard this first on "in her shoes". In tears I rewound
the film so that I could write down the title and find out more. I'm not
into poetry at all but this struck a cord with me. As in comment number
350, for me it is about still loving someone after death. My sister died
tragically and this poem sums up exactly how I feel now she has gone. It
is so beautiful just like she was.

I have read this poem over and over again. It seems everytime I read it, I
really get the full meaning of love. This poem has touched me in away that
I can't explain. All I can say is, it's nice to feel love in your heart
and to be loved by that special person who not only makes your heart feel
like the words in this poem, but also takes your breath away.

obviously people that commented #19 and #72 cant read poetry at all you
cant take the poem literally you have to find its deeper meaning which in
this poem to me is with distance or death you are always going to remember
how you once felt or still feel for that person. its like a promise that
you wont forget and you are never without those memories of them. the
person may be gone but the feelings remain strong. and its not about a
stalker at all if you had any idea what love is you would know when you
truly love someone you always will because there is no past tense "loved".
"here is the deepest secret no body knows" what is the secret no one
knows?!?! DEATH what is the wonder that keeps the stars apart?!?!after
death... its heaven (this is one of my favorite poems its B-E-A-utiful)

Like many I heard this poem for the first time while watching "In her
shoes." That was moments ago and I was compelled to come online and find
out more. I retired from the Marine Corps last November, and now work for
the federal government. I am currently away from home on business, and of
course as an infantry Marine for over 20 yrs I was deployed quite a bit.
This poem said so much about my feelings while so far away from my wife
and family. I eagerly anticipate sharing it with her, for I truly have
carried her heart with me for years!
Awesome Poem!
