"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 you plann'd
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then 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"

THE MEANS WHICH I GET :
Christina Rosetti wrote this literary work delightfully. I don't know why my tears come down into my cheeks at first I read it. It explains about someone (may be he is a man) who has hurt her self. A man who has given love to her, has told many promises, has made a lot of plan in their future. But all of it just a word!!! There isn't the real!
A boy is always like that. They always love us (girl) at first. They give their love 100% at first time, but through the time, their love become lower and lower until they never remember anything which they said in the past.
And the girl just be able to cry more and more if they remember the hurt which is made by the man.
