Remember

Rating: 3.8
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

The poem has a certain sadness, but I like it very much. The refrain 'Remember me' is so right'. She imagines herself having gone away to the silent land of death-not too emotive but controlled. She is probably talking to her husband, who remains behind. The poem stays with me day and night.
