It is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever heard.
I heard it on the movie,"In her shoes",and I love it...
is beautiful...

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.

I really love this poem. Of course like most i first realized it after
watching the movies "in her shoes". It made me realize that even though
something or someone is gone they'll always be there with you. I'll carry
you in my heart..

i also heard this poem in the movie "in her shoes". i love the poem, but i
also love the context in which it was presented. rather than having the
bride read it to her husband, it was read sister to sister. it takes the
meaning to a whole new level. it made me cry as i thought about how much i
would love to be able to express words like that to my dear sister.
