What a wonderful poem! The way it was read in the
movie "In Her Shoes" was so appropriate and gave
such hope to me on relationships that I struggle
with. It made me think about my daughter, my sister,
my brother and especially my husband. We all carry so much inside us, but
it is what we carry in our hearts that is most important... e.e. cummings
gave me the gift of expressing what i need to say.

What a beautiful peice of poetry. Just saw the movie "In her Shoes",like
the rest of you. I lost my husband almost nine months ago,and my girlfriend
lost hers a few months ago, the poem was so moving it reduced us to tears,
I just had to come home and search for the words and here I am commenting
like the rest of you. How appropriate is this poem when you have or have
had a love with some one that is so deep and on a level that you feel you
only have one heart between you. I carry my husbands heart in my heart so
that he is with me always. Beautiful work

I too saw In Her Shoes tonight and was absolutely moved by the reading. I
had to pull up the words on line as soon as I made it home. What heartfelt
words!

WoW...I never usually cry at movies but this poem really moved me to tears.
Fate just took me to that movie theatre this afternoon and Im so glad i
watched the movie. It just made me realize how lucky I am to have people in
my life who love and care so much for me. I will always carry them in my
heart knowing that Im a better person everyday because of them. Thank you
Mr.Cummings-youre the best!

I just got home from seeing the movie In Her Shoes. Loved the movie and the
appropriateness of the poem. We lost our son in a tragic accident 4 years
ago. The words of this poem are so heartfelt.

Today I saw the movie "In Her Shoes." I was so impressed with Cameron
Diaz's reading of i carry your heart with me by ee cummings, I looked up
the poem and copied it. E.E. Cummings himself would be proud of such a
tribute given to his words.

I saw "In Her Shoes" last night and being a poet, of sorts, I fell in love
with the piece by e.e. cummings too, like the rest of you did. I've been
trying to find an on-line audio clip of the poem but have not been able to
find one. Can anyone help? It doesn't have to be a clip from the actual
movie. I just want an audio version of that poem so I can hear it read
aloud again.

I saw the movie "In Her Shoes" last night with a guy that I've been dating
for a short time and we both cried. I not only thought about romantic
love, but the love that I have for my only son, my adult son that lost his
dad a few years ago. This poem touched me on many levels as I also thought
of my two sisters and brother, my Mom and Dad, my neices and
nephews...really all my family and my dear friends too.

And as for my date - how bad can a guy be that would go to a "girl" movie,
"get it", AND be moved to tears?

well,i am very glad,that classic poetry has fianlly made a come-back in
hollywood. but,i, have always loved cummings. peotry is the only thing that
sometimes makes sense in a situation, it can bridge the gap of what you
wish to say,but, can not! i used to write it in highschool. for some reason
it was easier then, maybe it was just a time full of pain,or better yet
more subject matter. i'm glad to be reminded of this love of literature.
bon apptit!

This poem has come to mean so much to me. I thought of my daughter, Mandy,
when I saw the movie this week, "IN HER SHOES". Cameron Diaz, Maggie, has
Mandy's demeanor,looks, and loves with her heart. I feel this way about
my only lovely daughter, I carry your heart with me,I carry it in my heart.
Love, MOM
