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.

I saw "In Her Shoes" last night and that was the first time I've heard this
poem, and it was so beautifully read that I cried. It's meaningful
especially when you're at a certain stage of your life where things are
happening around you; when you have doubts about your relationships with
your loved ones; the loss of someone or perhaps just being in love. It's a
moving poem - a beautiful one. And it's now my favourite.

The people that you think about while reading I carry your heart are the
ones that we judge our actions by. They have truly touched us as did this
poem. And we will carry them both with us always.

This poem by e e cummings, ipotimizes the very essence of how one in love
or one who deeply loves another, feels. He has explained how it feels to
love and used the voice and words, I imagine, a heart would speak if it
could.
This poem, describes how I feel when I think about the love I have for my
precious mother, Maureen Pearl, who passed away in 1984.

The movie "In her Shoes" was great. The poem made me cry tears of joy and
touched me beyond words. I will type it and have it framed. e.e. cummings
has been one of my favorite poets, who happened to be a genius.
Sharing "I carry your heart with me," with many friends who need to know
how powerful a poem can be and touches your soul.

I have a friend in the hospital, not sure if her illness will take her
later on. I heard this in the movie and lost it.... If something does
happen, this will be read at her service. She is truly my SBC (sister by
choice).......

The first time I had read this poem was in "in her shoes" (the book), the
second time I saw it in the movie! It's so beautiful and very romantic!!
Now it's my favorite poem!

Also in the movie: In her shoes.
I feel lost these days becuase of hard study all the time without
consolation from my dear mother who lives far away in China, while now I'm
in Korea.
I love you, Mom!
And this poem gives me the refreshment.I'm going back to study now with
enthusiation.
