A Place in Thy Memory by Gerald Griffin

A Place in thy memory, Dearest!
Is all that I claim:
To pause and look back when thou hearest
The sound of my name.
Another may woo thee, nearer;
Another may win and wear;
I care not though he be dearer,
If I am remember'd there. 

This is just the first verse of "A Place in Thy Memory," and, personally, I think it is the best part of the poem. If you'd like, you can read the rest of it here.
