This work has reached the exceptional level

A deeply personal and reflective sonnet with two most effective metaphors in the first pair of quatrains and the bonus of a perfect summation in the third:
"A moment spent on care is sanctified,
And time infused with love is sacrament".
What a wonderful tribute to your beloved in the closing couplet:
"I do not fret if time is almost through,
Because I found eternity in you."
Needless to say the iambic pentameters are spot on, as is your rhyming. I also liked the internal rhyme of 'gravity' in the second stanza.
