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
