WHEN I AM DEAD, MY DEAREST        By Christina Rossetti
When I am dead, my dearest,Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above meWith showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,                      And if thou wilt, forget.
I shall not see the shadows,I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingaleSing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilightThat doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,And haply may forget.
Grief of those who lost their loved oneDoes not want to be missedForgetting would be happier
