Songs inspired by poems or books

Sometimes songs are inspired by poems. I think this is the case of 'Treasure' (By: Rob Smith) which was inspired by the poem 'Remember'(By:Christina Rossetti (1830-1894))

Christina Rossetti
Remember(Christina Rossetti):

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Treasure (The Cure)

Robert Smith
"She whispers
"please remember me
when I am gone from here"
she whispers
"please remember me
but not with tears...
Remember I was always true
remember that I always tried
remember I loved only you
remember me and smile...
For it's better to forget
than to remember me
and cry"
