…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.
– Remember by Christina Rossetti
Is it really better to forget and be glad especially on this day? To forget her means removing the one thing that connects us. You and I…we weren’t the same before her and even more so after she was gone. She was our missing piece.
I hope wherever she may be, she remembers. I know I do.
