REMEMBER - Christina Rosetti

Remember me when i am gone away
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor i half to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned;
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
and afterwards remember, do not grieve;
For if the darkness and orruption leave

A vestige of the thought that once i had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

[forget and smile]
