"Sonnet 116" is a poem written by William Shakespeare. This love poem is one of the most well-known sonnets of all-time. The poem speaks about what love is. Something that doesn't change and can't be removed. Something that it is constant. It is "an ever-fixed mark" and it is "not Time's fool". It doesn't change no matter how long we wait.
by William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616)
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved".
