Once in my life i did read a poem of the great poet Christina Rossetti.The writer of this poem thinks of the time when she will be dead.She doesn't wish grief to burden the life of him she loves.Once she is dead she says it will not matter much to her what people in the living world do or donot do .

In these days also there are people around us whom we love, may be they are our parents , our sisters or brothers,or friends, or in the most beautifull case.....our lovers....but in all these cases...we really have to leave them behind and make an endless journey towards Heaven. This poem says a few words from the poets heart regarding this....she is simply great:

When I am dead my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
But the green grass above me
With showers and dew drops 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.

I don't need a signature to identify myself because mere sabhi dosto mujhe mere swabhav se pahchante hay......still for people who don't know me.........recognise me as........LOVER OF THE ONE WHO LOVES TO MAKE A JOURNEY TO THE HEART WHICH KNOWS HOW TO LOVE.
