The first time I heard someone read this poem, I stopped dead in my tracks
and listened, and listened and listened. All the sounds of the world going
by became fainter and fainter and fainter as I hung onto each and every
earthy bit and could no longer hear anything else or think of anything
else. It is thee most beautiful attempt of getting to the depth,
depth,depth of how one feels when they love someone soooo deeply that this
person brings meaning to their VERY existence. Hearing someone read the
line that goes... "here is the deepest secret nobody knows...here is the
root of the root and the bud of the bud....." is the closest description of
the magnitude of my feelings for the people who have touched my life in
insurmountable ways from my grandfather, to each of my three beautiful
children, my husband and special friends who make up my life. xo-B.

i wonder who he wrote the poem to/about - it's such a beautiful poem. the
first time i read it i thought it was about love lost - a break up or
seperation - but on later readings, i thought like kasey that it could be
to a love lost by death. so sent it on to my aunty after the death of her
son, she carries it with her because it reminds her that he's not so far
away... it's just so beautiful

Has anyone thought that perhaps the departed E.E. Cummings was referring to
a love he lost by death?? For he "fears no fate (for you are my fate, my
sweet)" meaning that he does not fear death because he will meet his love
again one day. Also, the secret that no one knows could be what happens
after death "tree of life".

I saw the movie - "In Her Shoes" last night it's amazing and the poem "I
Carry your heart with me" is used within the movie. It works well, what a
great movie and what a great poem !

This poem is one a hurting heart, and a healing heart can relate to. When
you loose someone, it seems as though you carry them closer to you, I hate
being able to relate to this poem. He is a talented man.

i think we all know there is no way in words to explain love, but eec
showed to me that he got close enough so the person he loves understand the
true of his words.....has any one think that maybe this is not a pure love
that join the heart of 2 lovers, but the pure love that join the heart of a
mother to his baby before was born("...of a tree called life")..and hiding
this baby from everyone ("here is the deepest secret nobody knows")..think
about it..
