Sonnet 5: True Love
I do not only love you with just my eyes
And not just with my heart too, my dearest.
Nor do I sweet talk you with deceitful lies,
Nor do I just love you when you are nearest.
But with every fibre of my being:
My love for you is built to last for ever
For it is your face that I love seeing
And ensuring you are unhappy never.
For when I send you love’s pages in a note,
Or a special card on your sweet birthday,
I find that I am pleased on you to dote
And I to spend those happy times at play.
Your only happiness is my utmost gain
And your love for me is what keeps me sane.
