After losing two family members at once to an accident i struggled to make
sense of life. In one short poem it seems to be all there for everyone. I
will carry them with me as i always have, but e.e. cummings worded this
poem masterfully, describing how so many of us feel perfectly

I first saw this poem while reading the book In Her Shoes,it made me cry
because I miss my sister so much. My sister and I are 3000 miles and 10
years apart, but I can guarantee that if she showed up on my doorstep
tomorrow, we will be wearing the same thing, right down to the socks. We
are best friends, inseperable, I adore my sister, and while watching the
movie I cried like a baby because I could picture my reading this at her
wedding. So if she will let me, I want to read this when she marries her
fiance in July. Whattaya say Nik?

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

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.
