~Remember Me poem & movie~

Do not shed tears when I have gone
but smile instead because I have lived.

Do not shut your eyes and pray to God that I’ll come back
but open your eyes and see all that I have left behind.

I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me
but still I want you to be full of the love we shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of what happened
between us yesterday.

You can remember me and grieve that I have gone
or you can cherish my memory and let it live on.

You can cry and lose yourself become distraught
and turn your back on the world
or you can do what I want - smile, wipe away the tears,
learn to love again and go on.

Poem by painter and  poet... David Harkins

Yesterday I went to see the movie
"Remember me"
I'm a fan of Pierce Brosnan & Robert Pattinson 

For some of you older Gals
who remember Troy Donahue 
 (my heart throb as a teenager)
Robert reminds me a little of Troy :-}
 Oh to be young again! LOL...

Have you seen this movie?
 If so what did you think? 
I was curious about the controversial ending
and wanted to see what the fuss was all about.
The movie is dark and a bit upsetting.
Some of the screens were over done and unnecessary.
I found the ending very powerful, I did not see it coming.
I left the theater in tears and a bit depressed
but even so I was glad I went.
 I say go see it...

Hmmm. Interesting. The papers by me rated it as a "D". I never agree with them!! I want to see it and more so now after reading this post. The poem you included is just beautiful.

Mary, what a beautiful poem. I haven't seen the movie, but I think I will check it out. I like the girl who plays in it. She is on Lost and I am a big Fan of Lost and this is it's final season. I still haven't figured things out, but it seems like everyone on the show has 6 degrees of separation. Love and Blessings, Pat

Now that you mention it, I DO see a little Troyboy in Robert Pattinson (<-- I'm glad he lost the vampire teeth for Remember Me.)

Hi Mary,
I checked online to see what the ending would be as I had heard what it may be so I didn't see it ! I was looking forward to it too, but didn't want the ending in my mind. :o) Hope all is well. I haven't read your blog in a while. Love, Lori
p.s. I finally listed some items in my etsy shop too!
