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........

Like so many the first time I heard the poem I Carry Your Heart With Me I
was watching the movie In Her Shoes. Just the week before my daughter had
given birth to my first grandchild Emma Victoria. I knew as soon as I
heard the poem that it was how I had always felt about my daughter and now
how I feel about Emma. Thank you Mr. Cummings for puting my feeling into
words.

I sent this poem to a male friend after his wife died. She was 34 and they
were two parts of one. I see them as belonging in the poem.

I heard this poem last night when my mom talked me into renting In Her
Shoes. I rarely cry and later that night, I couldn't help but crying
because this poem really hit home for me. I think I might read this poem
at my own sister's wedding as a surprise.

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.
