The movie "In Her Shoes" is actually based on the novel by Jennifer Weiner.
This is only the 2nd novel and she is such a great author. I read the
book a couple years ago(when it was published) and fell in love with the
poem. I was so glad they left it in the movie(other parts of the book are
completely different). If you really liked the movie, you should read the
book...even better!!

I also saw the movie "In her Shoes" and when this was read the tears just
came. I loved a man so much once years ago and our relationship eventually
went down separate paths. My life moved foward, but I never stopped loving
him. If he only knew how many nights I longed for him. I also believe in
that saying "set it free and if it comes back it was meant to be". He came
back. The promblem is when I took that seprate path I got married. In my
heart I know he is my soulmate and how I want a life with him now is
unimaginable. I can only do one thing now, that is put this in GOD's
hands.

Christian, Always remember no matter what happens "I carry your heart (i
carry it in my heart" ALWAYS !

I will always Love You !

Letting someone you love go because you know it is best for that person is
the hardest thing I've ever done. God knows how much I love her ...
SisterI ... and this poem is amazing in how it has the same words but means
so many different things to so many different people with so many different
life changes.

There are few times when words during a long day effect you the way this
beautiful poem did. I sat watching the movie "In her shoes" with my
daughter. Tears running down my face and the words touching me so
profoundly. I am sure it was meant for a lost love but for me it was the
love I felt for my beautiful and fearless daughter. I had never heard of ee
cummings but will be sure to read more of his intriguing words.

Again I had never heard of E.E.Cummings!!
I saw the movie "In Her Shoes"
Where it was read......
The moment this poem was read the tears welled in my eyes and I began to
cry my heart out as this is how i feel so much about the love of my life
and will ALWAYS feel about them!

This poem stirred every emotion in me and will always stay with me!!

I love it so much and i wish that i could write words like this man once
did!

I love you Phoenix!!
Forever and Always

When I heard this poem I was immediately taken. I was overwelmed by the
fact that it expressed the exact emotions and feeling I have for my sweet
man. He is the love of my life and even though I write poetry, none of my
poetry truly embodied all I was feeling. My words didn't seem perfect
enough to show him how i felt, but thank God E.E. Cummings had the words.
I love you Brooks, I love you so very much.

with so many more poignant and touching stories of loss through death it
feels selfish to add this , but yet it is not for me. J i carry your heart
with me, maybe he didn't capitalize ever, on this especially, because he
felt so small in comparison to the love of his intended. it is always the
lowercase use of i ( as in self) that stands out when reading cummings.
every day is an attempt to overcome the loss of the love of my life. but i
am fortunate, and blessed with others who help me realize that to not
overcome this is just self pity and a waste of love that i could use for
those others. but still...

This poem touched me as it has touched many others. My daughter died just
over 3 years ago, and this poem is perfect for her scrapbook. I love you
Chloe, and I will always carry your heart in mne.

My true love read this poem to me yesterday. Interesting comments to read
by all on this web site. One in particular was if it meant to be if you
let it go it will come back. Twenty five years ago I used those exact
words and left my love. He came back to me. It is more than true love.
He is my soul mate. Our hearts are intwined in a way unimaginable. We are
and have been connected all these years, most of the time spent longing for
each other. How amazed I am that we can love so purely, so truly, so
perfectly for this amount of time. The poem was a beautiful way to express
the depths of our love. He continues to amaze me with the depths of his
feelings. They mirror my own. I am the luckiest woman alive. For anyone
to expose themselves to the depth of this kind of love is both frightening
and amazing. I am blessed.
