Did I Err?

“ I loved you for your own sake, whereas other men love what belongs to you; and your beauty, which is not you, is fading away, just as your true self is beginning to bloom”
- PLATO [Alcibiades]

So, I have one confession to make
I love you for your own sake
Not that I had loved you the most
Not that all else had been lost
Not that I have changed a bit
Not that I was so severely hit
Yet, I have a great concern
Just for you to discern
Now that you are well into your prime
Blooming with the inner beauty this time
You are mine; mine alone.
I will adore you more,
As it were.
To let you know for sure,
That my love is pure.
And that I didn’t err!
