this poem is very enjoyable to read, it explains true love and seems to sum
it up in one poem yet love is an endless list of trues...i am in love and
this is how i feel because i moved away and i will never let go

I Just watched the Movie that ended jut a few moments ago, "In Her Shoes".
It touched my heart, I was immediately reminded of a special someone to
come home.

Cummings comments on the complexities of love and lost with simple words
and simple thoughts makings the ambiance of the poem appear deep and
meaningful. Cummings may not have been neccesarily been feeling a lost of
love but there was a deeper understanding for love whether the outcome of
it was good or bad. The poem itself rates an A+

I did not first hear this poem from the movie "In Her Shoes." I'm
fourteen, and the first time I read it was when I was twelve. I was
obsessed with e. e. cummings because he and I were of a similiar "blood."
I felt I understood his poems more than many readers. This poem really
brought to home that true love is something that I want...

I have just finished watching the film 'in your shoes'. I tyhink this was a
superb film on many levels but the quotation was perfect. It reminds me of
even when I have been desperate I have had my wife and her love and this
sums it up.. I don't know where one ends and the other begins and I pray it
will stay that way forever.

I think this poem is great. I'm really not much for poems but the minute i
heard this in that movie like everyone else in her shoes i feel in love
with it and decided to use it for my school project where I learned abuot
Cummings life and his writing style. The was I interpret this poem is that
he is saying that life goes on and we grow more then we would expect and we
cant hide from it. People die move away but they can always be with u all
you have to do is carry them with you in your heart and they will never
really be gone

I am only 12 and i watched 'in her shoes' this week and the moment i heard
the poem 'i carry your heart with me' i knew it would be my favourite poem
for the rest of my life, and stay with me and be meaningfull in situations
to come.
I love this poem dearly, my mum is quite fond of it also, she cries
evreytime she reads it or i read it to her. This poem i know will play a
big part in my life, and influence me in many ways.
This poem to me means a deep love of many kinds, with couple, friends and
of course sisterhood.
I love to write poetry and storys myself and this poem inspired me in so
many ways not just with writing but its given me a peice of advice i found
in the words. To apprieciate your loved ones! i am only twelve and this
poem means so much to me. I can only thank the film for introducing it to
me. And of course e.e. cummings. What a wonderful man!! He is now my
favourite poet. xXx

Like so many others I too heard this poem in the movie "In Her Shoes". I
had heard about this poem once before, my mom had told me about it, but
sadly enough I just blew it off like most things that she says. I have
watched this movie 3 times and have cried each and every time I hear this
poem. It is such a beautiful poem - it puts feelings into words for so many
people. This poem has brought me and my mom closer. You can never break the
bond of a mother and a daughter. No matter where life takes me when I
graduate, she will always be in my heart. Thank you E.E. Cummings for
opening my eyes and my heart to rebuild my relationship with my mom.
