The Lover of Beauty | A Poem by Lambon Salifu Muhammeed

Love me not because of my beauty,
For beauty is a mortal!
Mine will fade off your sight if a new beautiful is discovered.
Love me because I’m your breath and soul.
If you love me because of my beauty, you truly do not love me.
You are just a lover of beauty!
