I heard this poem for the first time in the movie In Her Shoes. The movie
is somewhat like the relationship with my sister. The poem touched me, it
moved me....and i'm only 15 years old. My sister and I both cried when
hearing that poem. It is something we will carry in our hearts for the rest
of our lives.

I was blessed to receive this beautiful poem at Christmas time by a man
whom I have been deeply in love with for some time. The irony is that he
realised his feelings for me a little too late and now sadly circumstances
keep us apart. I cry silently almost every day. Maybe one day fate will
bring us together again and if it doesn't, at least we will always carry
each other's hearts.

Es increible como alguien puede escribir algo que nos signifique tanto, me
parece asombroso que con unas cuantas lineas existan tantos comentarios en
esta página a la cual nadie nos recomendo. Lo conocí por la pelicula "In
her shoes" simplemente MAGNIFICO

I discovered the poem of "I carry your heart with me" in the film "In her
shoes". Both poems (also "One Art") were really so impressive. Thanks to
the writer of the film that s/he brought these beatiful works to us. We
lost my dad last year after twelve years of health battle. Losing a loved
one is the worst disaster. And you carry his/her heart with you during your
lifetime. The feelings change and transform, but sense of loss catches you
up everyday. However, life goes on with or without us as always, I know. I
think and pray everyday for all we loved and for all we lost.
And I carry on...

Beautiful. It describes how deep love could be and how beautiful it seems
to everyone. The human heart is a lovely place when we put such kind of
feelings inside.
I'm not the kind of person who likes poetry but this poem really touched me
because it talks about the kind of love that you keep only for few
persons... It's beautifully sweet

ive lost my girlfriend couple of months ago 'cause of some stupid
behaviour. our relationship now is quite best described as "on ice",
whereas i still love her from the very bottom of my heart. some say this
poem is meant to be dedicated to sisters whilst others say its meant to be
dedicated to lovers. i'm of the opinion that its meant to be dedicated to
everyone, of whom you carry his or her heart.

in personal interest:
patricia, i love you. still and besides everything what once happened. i'm
sorry for what was my fault.

personal adding:

What i never dared to say,
Sun shines when you look my way.
I need you here, need you to stay,
i love you more with every day.

Like many, I first heard the poem from the movie In Her Shoes... I cried.
It describes aptly what I felt in my heart. My husband and I are separated
but my feelings for him never changed.. Silently, I carry his heart in my
heart...

What a shame...I had to go to the cinema to hear this beautiful poem for
the first time. My wife, who's sister died in a car-accident 5 years ago,
asked me to try and find the poem on the internet immediately.
We just found a new way in coping with this awful event..... This one's for
you Hanneke.... We love you

I love this poem. I cant read it without crying. It is so amazing, it
defines me. It is me. My love.
