True love is a sacred fire
That burns off eternally,
And nothing can dim its unique shine
Or transform its fate.
True-love speaks in tender shades
And hears with mild ear,
Real love provides with open heart
And true-love conquers fear.
True-love tends to make no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And real love keeps with gentle fingers
The minds that it entwines.
Allow me to to not the relationship of real minds Sonnet 116
I would ike to not to the relationship of real thoughts
Acknowledge impediments; love is not love
Which alters when it alteration locates,
Or bends using the cleaner to remove:
O, no, its an ever-fixèd mark,
That appears on tempests and it is never shaken;
It's the celebrity to each and every wand'ring bark,
Whose well worth's unknown, although his heighth be taken.
Love's perhaps not Time's fool, though rosy mouth and cheeks
Within their bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters perhaps not together with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it also towards side of doom.
If this be error and upon myself proved,
We never ever writ, nor no man ever enjoyed.
By William Shakespeare
If Thou Must Love Me
If thou must love myself, allow it be for naught
Excluding love's benefit just. Cannot state,
'I love her for her laugh - this lady look - the girl way
Of talking carefully, for a technique of thought
That falls in fine with my own, and certes brought
A sense of pleasant simplicity on such a day' -
For these things-in-themselves, beloved, may
Be altered, or modification for thee - and love, therefore wrought,
Could be unwrought therefore. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's cleaning my cheeks dry:
an animal might forget to weep, whom bore
Thy comfort very long, and shed thy love thus!
