I have loved thee with a passionate heart,
Thy beauty hath left me more than breathless,
Thine eyes, thine eyes, a perfect work of art,
The deepest blue upon my soul impress,
A love for you that taketh me away.
Giveth me a key to open the door,
I shall hold thy heart, from it never stray,
And when my heart is empty, give thine more.
My love is yours forever and a day,
Oh, sweet maiden, only you I shall adore,
Tell me thy love will never cause dismay,
I shall guide my heart upon your soul’s shore.
What might I do love, what might be mine test,
To know that my heart beats inside thy breast?
