Remember Me 

Personalized Remember Me Poem

Remember Me

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 smile

Than that you should remember and be sad.

- Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) 

Make A Personalized Poem For The Service

Christina Georgina Rossetti's poem "Remember Me," personalized with three lines of text for your loved one, is a beautiful tribute for the funeral, burial, or memorial service.

Afterwards, it is a wonderful remembrance to display in your home.   A  little hello each day.

It also makes a not to be forgotten gift for surviving spouse, children, and other family members. 

We've made it easy for you to create your own poem for your loved one.  And as many copies as you wish.

Upon ordering the poem, you will instantly receive a link to download the artwork, which is in a Word document.  You need to have Word program on your computer.

At the bottom of the page, below the poem, there is the insert; In Loving Memory Of.

This is where you edit the poem and insert your three lines of text.  As illustrated in the photo above, typically this is;

  1. your loved one's name
  2. her relationships; for example; mother, sister, daughter, granddaughter  or  father, brother, son or grandfather
  3. the year of birth and year of death.

Click save and you are ready to print.  I recommend printing it on Epson velvet fine art paper which gives a very rich look to your poem.  Or you can send the document to Staples or Kinkos to print it for you.  As many copies as you want.  Again, ask for it to be printed on premium paper.

You can frame it with an inexpensive frame from Walmart or Amazon, which typically costs around $14 to $19.

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 me

With 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 nightingale

Sing on, as if in pain:

And dreaming through the twilight

That doth not rise nor set,

Haply I may remember,

And haply may forget.

- Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
