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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost my 21 year old son Nicholas on September 16, 2004. This poem has put
into words the very emotional response of love, sympathy, and tenderness my
heart & soul could not. E. E. Cummings put into words what my heart is
saying Nicholas my son, I too carry your heart with me (I carry it in my
heart).

This poem was so very touching, the first time I heard it was from the
movie In Her Shoes (My new favorite) The first time I saw it I Cried. My
loved one has recently been deployed over seas and I want to dedicate this
poem to him for the upcoming Valentines Day. This is a beautiful poem.

I dedicate this beautiful poem to my Dreamgirl, Josette. She has enabled me
to experience feelings of love and compassion for her that come from the
deepest part of my heart. I have trouble putting those feelings into words
and this poem says it all.

I fell inlove with this poem after I saw the movie. I read it to my

beacause we are oceans apart right now...I will always carry his heart in
mine.

torn apart ~ now she is an ocean away. This poem says it all...

I first heard these words in a song by the late Michael Hedges. It touched
me then, but so much more now that I have loved and lost my precious little
granddaughter, Gracie. She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
(basically only half a heart). In her short life of 7 months, she filled
every heart around her with wonderful smiles. Gracie, I carry your heart
with me.
