Poem that gets to the heart of things

Here's a poem I like by Raymond Carver. It was written shortly before his death at age 50:
"Late Fragment" 

And did you get what

you wanted from this life, even so? 

I did.

And what did you want?

To call myself beloved, to feel myself

beloved on the earth.
Sr. Mary Roberta Viano, VHM
