Remember Me

Standard

Remember me when I’m gone away, gone far away into a 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 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 corruption leave a vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and smile, than you should remember and be sad

[ Christina Rossetti 1830-1894 ]
