Guardian Angel Abstract

REMEMBER
Christina 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.

    • You are welcome. This particular poem by Christina Rossetti has been one that has touched me very deeply. It is always good to be reminded of poets from the long ago. Their writing, especially, if it has survived so long and is still remembered, then it is like touching immortality. Thank you John for your thoughful words. J.K.
