Love in the right way. Love her, watching her
that she loves more than you, loves you as well.
Let fools compare sweet jealousy to hell.
A perfect love, though hard, will still prefer

her happiness to yours, find yours in theirs.

your chances, your desires, and what is right.
Then kiss them both, and wish them a good night.
This love for theirs will last more than a day

and be loved back. And if this is a sin
