In February 1992, about one month after discovering that her boyfriend of 12 years was having an affair with her 20-year-old daughter, Mia Farrow gave a heart-shaped, Victorian-inspired card to Woody Allen for Valentine's Day. It featured a picture of Farrow's family, with pins stabbed through the hearts of all of her children, and a steak knife stabbed through her own chest.

On one side of the card, Farrow wrote words like "loss" and "betrayal." On the other side she penned the poem:

On the steak knife she taped a photo of Soon-Yi.

Allen shared the Valentine, and other notes from Farrow, with Steve Kroft during a 1992 interview for 60 Minutes, which CBS has recently uploaded to its website.
