By Christina Rossetti – (Biography)

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 turn to go yet turning stay.

    Remember me when no more day by day

    You tell me of our future that you plann’d:

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 corruption leave

    A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and smile

Than that you should remember and be sad.
