I heard this poem today for the first time in the movie 'In Her Shoes'. I
found it very moving and looked it up on the internet immediately. I also
read some of E E Cummings' other poems.... I loved it.

This poem really touched my heart the moment i read it for the first time.
Yes, if you love someone so much, you would carry his heart with you,
wherever you go, may you be with him or not. I really care so much for this
person, but he treats me just like a lil sis. Anyway, as this poem says, no
matter what, i'll carry his heart with me wherever fate leads me. I just
want him to be happy.

Although I love my husband and 4 children more than anyone on Earth, when I
read this poem I thought of my love for Jesus.

It is a beautiful poem and reminds me very much of philip sidney.
My true-love hath my heart and I have his,
By just exchange one for the other given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
There never was a bargain better driven.
His heart in me keeps me and him in one;
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
I cherish his because in me it bides.
His heart his wound received from my sight;
My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
For as from me on him his hurt did light,
So still, methought, in me his hurt did smart:
Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss,
My true love hath my heart and I have his.

I also heard this poem in the movie "In Her Shoes" I wish that I had known
about it a year earlier, I lost my best friend, my sister to cancer. I
spoke at her funeral and I would have loved to recite it to her. It is one
of the most beautiful poems I have ever heard. I will always carry her
heart with me forever.

This poem touched my heart and soul deeply. I was watching the movie In Her
Shoes when I first heard it. I kept playing it over and over just to hear
the words again, all the while tears streaming down my face. I recently
lost my husband and this poem has such meaning for I will always carry him
in my heart. I plan on printing it and hanging it on my wall. Bless you Mr.
Cummings for writing it.
