She Thought Richly and Deeply...

 
 
 
 



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.
     

     
    Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
