Beauty is pain and pain is beauty. Who knows the troubles, but the troubled. To love is all. Forever pain, Forever beauty. To love is all. -Tisha

Rita Dove's poem reminds me of something that Hallmark

This is a nice selection for those still in love with their significant other. However, a few along the lines of a "friend I may still in some way love" would cover many of us out there too. So the selection was inappropriately passionate for the "we're still friends" types---blaim it on When Harry Met Sally. Consider this for next year, thank you.

Sincerely, Damon
