Remember Me - Christina Rossetti

One of my favourite poems by Christina Rossetti was Remember Me. It was the first poem of her works that i ever read, and introduced me to the wonderful world of her poetry.

And is one of her best known poems. . .

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.
