Does this poem contain irony or parallel elements?

I want to know the literary element for this two line: "Remember me when I am gone away" and the line "Yet if you should forget me for a while"? Can anyone explain to me? Is it irony? antithesis? or parallel?

Antithesis is the use of contrasting or opposite ideas in a similar structure of usage. That being the case, since your lines are talking about opposite ideas, this would be an example of antithesis.
