Remember Me...

Remember me when I am gone away,
Far 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.

"Remember" - Christina Rossetti

I've been putting this on all my drawings and had it in my head for weeks! So rather than having to search it out every day on the net, I'm putting it here so I don't forget to remember...
