    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,
    Happily I may remember,
    And happily may forget.

    So Funny & Stu---...It is haply not the "happily"
    If you have any doubts go and ask "Christina Rossetti"

    Please please please never edit the poems written by very very well known poets

    Poets are the people who can mold the language the way they want.

    Sometimes you wont even find the words they use but they have the right to use them...
