Remember me when I am gone away
Gone far away into the silent land
Where you can no more take me by the hand,
Nor i half turn to go, yet turning to stay.
Remember me when no more day by day,
You tell me of our future that you planned,
Only remember me. You understand
It would be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for awhile
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 that you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember, and be sad.
I miss her
