Sonnet 109: O never say that I was false of heart

by
 O, never say that I was false of heart,
Though absence seemed my flame to qualify.
As easy might I from my self depart As from my soul which in thy breast doth lie.
That is my home of love; if I have ranged, Like him that travels I return again, Just to the time, not with the time exchanged, So that myself bring water for my stain.
Never believe though in my nature reigned All frailties that besiege all kinds of blood, That it could so preposterously be stained To leave for nothing all thy sum of good; For nothing this wide universe I call Save thou, my rose, in it thou art my all.
