Remember me

Thank you Mary for this lovely sonnet.  I hope that I may be able to remember him this way, and understand that this is what he would want for me too.  Though I really don't want to forget him, not a minute of my life.

Sonnet By: Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)

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
