Thou mayst love on, through love's eternity

 Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry,
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love, thereby!
But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou mayst love on, through love's eternity.
          - Sonnets from the Portuguese, XIV
          Elizabeth Barrett Browning
