This is simply my most favorite of poems. Evokes so much emotion. A
lifetimes work in 30 words!

I love this simple, honest, universal question so much I send it to
everyone who is important to me. It reminds me that I am only here because
my ancestors existed and strived against great odds. Hopefully I am
justified by being "beloved" in my lifetime. Carver's own difficulties give
hope that being beloved is still possible, if you have luck & strength (as
Mario Puzo said) and you have the courage to give unconditional love.
Since reading this poem, I quietly gaze at the beloved and the unbeloved -
and realise Carver said it all in those beautiful few words...
