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.

Well...like everybody seems to have...i heard this poem in the movie in her
shoes...it wouldnt have been the same without it...It reminded me of my
girlfriend...kind of funny coming from a guy, but this poem is the only
movie moment ever to bring me close to tears

I recently befriended a young lost soul. She is perfect as far as I can
see, when I heard this poem I promptly though of her! This poem has struct
a nerve with me and how I feel about this young lady. I hope she enjoyed
the poem. Friends are hard to come by and this depicts so many feelys that
are hard to express.

I was watching movie "In her Shoes", when i first heard this poem. This
poem was reminds me of my very dear best friend i've ever had (we are
friends for more than 10 years and met in university). The "bond" betweem
us sometimes go beyond sisters. Recently, she's going to have a new life
(she's going to marry), and I guess this poem would be a great poem for
her, that she know how much she meant for me. With this poem i just wanna
show how greatful i am to have her in my life and i hope the best for her.

I will be 53 years old in April. I have had children since I was 18 years
old. In November I moved to AZ. My children and my grandchildren live in
CA. Two weeks ago my youngest left the nest he move back to CA.
I have started a new chapter in my life, new home, town, new job, NO
children, am really feeling the empty nest. This poem says everything that
my heart feels. Thank you Mr. e.e. cummings, you wrote the words I
couldn't find........
