I'm so glad I didn't turn off the DVD of "In Her Shoes" half-way through,
for I would have missed the best part of the (up until that moment)
somewhat average film. Discovering this gorgeous poem at the end of the
movie was like finding a diamond ring on a sandy beach. I couldn't believe
my luck. Though an avid poetry buff, I'd never heard it before. Yet like
almost everyone commenting on this page, I was moved to tears.

I just watched "In Her Shoes". This poem touched me, the first thing I
thought of was my husband. He and I have been together for 20+ years the
this year we celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. This poem is
exactly how I feel about him. For better, for worse...I carry him in my
heart. I will be looking to purchase a book of poetry by E.E. Cummings,
highlighting this poem, as a gift to him for our anniversary.

I too heard this for the first time in "In Her Shoes." For me, it is a
chance for me to let go of a marriage that is no longer working but I will
still keep my husband in my heart.

I seen the movie "In Her Shoes" and when i heard the poem at the end, it
touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes, it says what is often left
unsaid, this peom made me think of my children, family and friends,it does
give meaning and it does put things into perpective for whatever reason you
are going through in your life...

My heart soared when I heard this. I, too, like Sabrina, thought
immediately of the love of my life. And, like her, circumstances keep us
apart. I am at this moment sending him these words in a card. My heart
goes with them...

i heard this poem in a movie named "in her shoes" acted by Cameron Diaz.
she read it in the end of the movie, which impressed me a lot and i was
touched the sisterhood of this movie as well as the love and authenticity.

I heard this poem for the 1st time last week. It truly connects all aspects
of love that is shared by all people. People come and go so often in our
lives and things go unsaid... to me this poem says what has been left
unsaid.
