The example I put down above is an example of the future tense being used when we see something in the future and remember it to be coming soon. One way to think of it is that “remember to come” refers to “watcher,” who is the person who remembers the event. In this case, this “remember to come” event occurs because the watchman, Frank, catches a cold and doesn’t realize that he’s having a cold until it’s too late to catch it. Frank is in the future.
