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 afterward, 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 

       Then that you should remember and be sad.
