Shakespeare's Sonnet number 116 speaks to the fact that true love is timeless, In Sonnet 71, we can interpret the fourth and fifth lines as the poet asking his love (or friend) not to remember him in death, but rather his words...... because he loves him so. Thus, he asks not to be mourned but loved and remembered for what remains. His poetry transcends time and death.
