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. (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply

    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 (Report) Reply

    'When I am dead my dearest sing no sad songs for me'

    'True Love' endures, though the 'Years Wash Away' but 'Song Of My Love' goes on like 'A Family Blessing'.

    'The living dying dying we love them best of all' (Report) Reply

    REMEMBER ME WHEN I AM GONE AWAY
    GONE FAR AWAY INTO THE SILENT LAND

    The never-ending passion of a poet and a lover also. Time gone by, but such passion is eternal. Today...today.....also hear the cry within....... (Report) Reply
