Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Heart, We Will Forget Him


Heart, we will forget him,
You and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ‘lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!
