After meeting the love of my life and loving him with all my heart I lost
him. With his death a part of me died. He lives in my heart now ansd this
poem solidifies that for me. It touched my life!!

THIS WONDROUS POEM WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION FROM IN HER SHOES (STARRING
THE UNDERRATED TONI COLETTE)--I WAS CRYING LIKE A BABY. IT JUST OOZES
METAPHOR.

I TOO LOVE EE CUMMINGS.

I WISH MORE MOVIES MADE YOU THINK...

Just saw the movie and had to stop myself from shedding a tear. Beautifully
recited poem, very moving indeed. I am glad I am now exposed to Cummings
poems.
Oh! Very good movie too.

This one touched me really straight away in my heart... actually it is a
rather simple image, that almost everybody knows (this feelings for someone
else); but to grasp things and feelings with an image like that, is what a
poet makes a poet, right?

I fell in love with Cummings the moment I read "you said Is" ... still find
it the most beautiful poem ever written. But this one ... means a lot to me
'cause my heart's been broken and I love that person so dearly that I fell
like dying. I carry his heart in my heart and this gives me strength to
believe that after those few months he will find the way back to me.

I lost my husband this summer. We always cherished one another. Life
without his presence is a daily struggle. I want to share an experience I
had the night he passed away because I truly believe i carry his heart in
my heart. I was awakened from sleep the night he died by the feeling I had
been touched or almost slapped on the heart. He was letting me know he was
alright and he'd always be with me.

Yes I too discovered this poem through the movie In Your Shoes. I am glad
for it. Ms. Diaz recited it beautifully. And I am now a fan.. whereas I
may never have known...
