The poet conveys that his loved one will get immortalized through the words of his poems, 'Not marbles nor the gilded monuments.' He tells his beloved that his powerful poem would out live the marble and the gold plated monuments constructed by the king and other Royal people. He believes his beloved will shine brighter in his verse than the stones of monuments on which time will leave its indelible marks. These monuments will wear out, blacken and appear unclean as time progresses. He explains how his love will stand the test of time even when every other manmade structure crumbles down He then says that few tiles over below overturns statues which were erected for the resemblance of great rulers and would devastate buildings which were a living example of fine masonry.
Furthermore, the poet says that nothing will be able to wipe out his beloved memory who will forever continue to live. He also says that despite death, jealousy and blind hatred from others his loved one will strive forward in life and will be praised and all the future generations will find his beloved worthy of praises which will last till doom’s day. The poet says till the day of last judgment his beloved will continue to live in his poem and in the eyes of admirers.
