my true-love hath my heart, and i have his

Two men sitting in a cabana, vintage gay photo

My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,

By just exchange one for the other given.

I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss:

There never was a better bargain driven.

His heart in me keeps me and him in one;

My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;

He loved my heart, for once it was his own;

I cherish his, because in me it bides.


Text: excerpt, ‘My true love hath my heart, and I have his’, 16th century,
Sir Philip Sydney
