This poem will forever be etched in my and my two sisters hearts. My late
father was a poetry lover and made sure we recognized the meaning and its
application to us.

When I first heard this in the movie "In her Shoes", I begain to cry.I to
have a sister taht we dfferences,but she is my sister forever. She is now
in the hospital, with a heart condition that will require surgury. I will

what the poems says : i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart) I
love you Janie my sister.

Itīs the most beautiful poem in the entire world! I almost cried when

I absoulutly love this poem. Of course like most i first realized it after
watching the movies "in her shoes". I would read it over and over again. It
made me realize a lot. 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 love you. 'Till death do us part.

I dedicate this poem to my sister, Vicki, who passed away in 1990 - who,
without which, I am lost. The future of my past is no more. I will carry
her heart always.

I dedicate this poem to my daughter, Daija, within whom, the past of my
future I've yet to behold, but with whom my dreams are realized.

I dedicate this peom to my mother, Darragh, who left to join Vicki in 1998
who knows all our deepest secrets.

These hearts I carry with me - I carry them in my heart.

i carry your heart with me


i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I first heard this poem, like many others, while watching the movie "In Her
Shoes."

To my daughter, Jessica...
I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)

I, just like everyone else, first heard this poem on the movie "In Her
Shoes". The moment it was read I cried because I can relate to it on so
many levels. After rewinding a dozen times and listening to it over and
over I had to have it. I am engaged to be married soon and I now plan to
have this poem (just like in the movie) read at the cermony. I love this
poem. Its not every day that you fall in love with someone elses writing
but on this day I did. I think that everyone, at least once in their life,
should read this poem and/or read it to someone else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this poem, this movie explains and shows my exact relastionship with my
sister it means more to me that anything,
im looking this poem up because tom, well now today.. is my sisters 19th
birthday and i havent gotten her anything and i didnt know what to do but
the moment i heard this poem i knew i wanted to give my older sister my
thoughts and feelings on paper, if i cant say them then whats a better way
then to have my sister read them..
i love my sister more then life itself, she is my light, my happiness, what
makes me want to be a better person.
