"When I am dead, my dearest" by Rossetti....it is the most beauty poem i read in English language.

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 notsee 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.
