Raymond Carver (1938-1988), Poet, Essayist, and Short Story Writer
The text of "Late Fragment", comprising Carver's last words before dying of cancer, is from the collection All of Us: The Collected Poems (Harvill/Vintage Reprint, 2000), which includes an introduction by his widow, the poet Tess Gallagher:
And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to
Beloved on the earth.
