My love for thee shall aye endure
As now, most perfect and most pure;

It brooks no increase, no decline,
Since it's complete, and wholly thine.
I cannot any cause discover,
Except my will, to be thy lover,
And boldly challenge any man
To name another, if he can.
For sure, when anything we see
Of its own self sole cause to be,
That being, being of that thing,
Lives ever undiminishing
But when we find its origin
Is other than the thing it's in,
Our losing that which made it be
Annihilates it instantly.
---- Abu Muhammad Ali Ibn Hazam
