This weekend I saw "In Her Shoes" and I was in shock. As a lover of poems
or poetry, I had completely forgot about this Cummings poem. I went back
to my collection and remember I marked this poem as "one of the best ways
to express love." It brought back great memories and hope to share this
with the one I love now.

I saw the movie "In Her Shoes" when I was visiting my boyfriend, who
recently took a job in New York while I am still finishing college in
Indiana. We are both huge fans of poetry and when this poem was read in
the end, I looked over at him and he was actually teary. So many poems are
only viewed by the public when put in the context of something like a film,
but this poem is strong enough to stand on its own and put into play in
life. In the end, it was actually the poem taken out of the context of the
film and placed into that of our own lives that made it such a phenomenal
piece of work. My boyfriend and I have been missing each other terribly,
but we carry each other in our hearts always, which is comforting and
inspirational.

I saw the movie as well. The poem DID make me cry. I was thinking of my
ex-husband "G" my son Justin and my friend (like a sister) Holly. The poem
truly touched my heart.I will copy it and carry always to remind me of the
feelings..I have for the people I love.Also of my son Jeremie and his wife
Greta and son Jamie. All major players in my life......

child...

Make no mistake, this a poem about love, great love between lovers, between
a Mother and child, between family. It belongs to anyone who carries love
in their heart. It is warm and wonderful and touching. One of the dearest
poems I've ever read. I love you, g and I love you mf! xxj

In her shoes was a really good movie. i didnt have high expectation for it
... except looking at the beautiful shoes. but it iwas surprisingly great.
this poem at then end made the movie a thousand times more wonderful. i
have always been a poetry fan.... so the fact that this poem touched me
greatly goes un said... i love it.

I too saw the movie "In her Shoes" and it was a good movie (a chick flick
my husband would say) but he enjoyed it as well. I applaud the movie
makers in letting us know who wrote this beautiful poeem. So often we are
left wondering where a song or poem came from and i want to thank them for
that. Great poem

I have been married 12 years, and have been separated from my wife by
military service the past few months-I stumbled on this poem and feel it
perfectly expresses what I feel about her and us at the end of each
day-that she is with me even when I am far away, and that she has had the
greatest role in creating whatever positive things I am.
