would you believe my fave song is title to a movie? remember, i just posted this on one of last month's blogs? pang-masa talaga mga trip ko.

here's another poem. this time by Christina Rosetti (circa 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 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:

For if the darkness and corruption leave

A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and

Than that you should remember and be sad.
