Remember

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.

    This is the poem I told my better half to read as a part of my euology at my funeral. It is romantic which Christina Rossetti was very romantic.

    This poem reminded me of high school when we were in Literature class- a poem that marked the beginning of my love for poetry, beautiful and profound words, excellent form and theme.

    Exquisite versus tremendously capturing regret and longing, she was clear with her language and presentation, as such its east to remember and it stays with you. Truly beautiful

    These poems are accessible, true to life, brave, straightforward, compassionate and very human.
