this is my promise to you

this is my promise to you --
never shall i claim you as mine
for you alone can give your "self" so
(that, your dearest possession, you)

and as you give to me freely hence
though i shall hold you as mine
still you shall ever stand your own
till the end even so dearly mine;

now i freely give you my "self"
(this my own dearest possession, me)
to be yours hence and yours always
while at once so to be mine.

i should like you as mine, freely,
as i shall be yours for so much less
from now till forever or till whence
our twin souls' appeals are none.

this is my promise to you --
