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

I just got home from seeing the movie In Her Shoes. This poem touched me
so much. I have a son who is struggling with his reading, when Maggie
started to read that poem in front of everyone I just started to cry and
instantly thought of him. I will share this poem with him and hope it will
come to be a favorite of his because it sure is now a favorite of mine.

I also heard this poem in the movie "In Her Shoes". I really liked it and
this is the second time I have heard a poem in a Hollwood picture. The
first was in "Must Love Dogs". I am glad to see that poetry is seeping
into another genre. Perhaps there will be more fans of poetry soon.

I went to see "In Her Shoes" with my sister on her birthday. When Cameron
Diaz read the poem my sister and I both started crying. This is such a
touching poem.
