The striking thing about the poem and the way it is (and should be read) is
that the idiosyncratic punctuation is part of its message. The conceit that
one can carry another's heart in one's heart is reinforced by the
juxtaposition of the lines.

I too have just finished watching the movie "In her shoes"! And I too have
a younger sister whom can be challenging and loveable all in one breathe!
This poem reminds me of the bond that only sisters share. My mother and her
younger sister are having communication problems, so I emailed them this
poem. Stating "if the world ended tomorrow.....would you be pleased with
what you last said!!!!!"

I first heard this poem months ago when the movie ' In Her Shoes' came out
in theaters. I thought if was great then. I watched this movie again with a
good friend this weekend on DVD and cried the whole time it was being read.
A very dear friend of mine died last month of breast cancer at the age of
41. She left behind a husband and 2 young daughters. I thought of her and
her family and friends we all loved her so. I am sending this poem to all
of them. Thanks Mr. Cummings for a wonderful poem.

I guess like many, I was introduced to this poem in the movie 'In Her
Shoes". The credits barely began rolling before I searched it out. I am
sending it to my fiance, because never before have words touched the depth
of emotion that I feel for him until this poem.

I just finished watching the movie "In her Shoes" and heard this poem for
the first time. I googled it right away and read it to my boyfriend. It
really touched my heart, it's one of the most beautiful poems I've heard
and now one of my favorite. This will definitely go in my scrapbook

This is a poem about true, unconditional love. Twin souls. If you have
never read about them, do. Basically, he is saying no matter what distance,
time, is between them - they will always be together. It is truly what it
means in the marriage vows, "what God hath put together, let no man put
asunder." If you have not had this type of love in your life.... I wish it
for all of you.
