REMEMBER ME: A POEM

When I shall cease to breathe

When the still moving wind ruffles the curtains

Under which I lie lifeless

Remember me

When the moon shines on my upturned face

Pale with misery and a nameless grace

That only the release of death can give

Remember I once used to believe

When my heart has stopped thudding

When my lips have stopped bidding

And pleading for love and life

Remember, I was a part of this strife

When my dull eyes remain open

When human thought is beyond my ken

When men have stopped calling me by name

Remember, in death too, I was the same

When my life, like a story unfinished

Is snuffed out like a flame, soon diminished

When my cold lips press together stiffly

Remember my only dying plea

Was for you to love me

Thank you BlossomSB. As I told you in the summary, it was inspired by Christina Rossetti. It was one of the few poems I wept over. I wish that someday you'll get time to read it, I am sure you'll love it. Thank you for your comments! Have a great day!

Is it? That's very kind of you. It is indeed unrequited love, something that only lives in movies and poems these days, it's hard to experience it in real life. But thank you so much for your lovely comments CMCastro!
