C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Remember
By Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)
 
From ‘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,        5
  You tell me of our future that you planned;
  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;        10
    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.
