Sonnet 31

Thy bosom is endeared with all hearts,Which I by lacking have supposed dead,And there reigns love and all love's loving parts,And all those friends which I thought buried.How many a holy and obsequious tearHath dear religious love stol'n from mine eyeAs interest of the dead, which now appearBut things removed that hidden in thee lie!Thou art the grave where buried love doth live,Hung with the trophies of my lovers gone,Who all their parts of me to thee did give;That due of many now is thine alone: Their images I loved I view in thee, And thou, all they, hast all the all of me.
When I'm loving my love's loving parts,long-dead lovers come, in fits and starts,to my mind just to say:the man in me todayis the sum of those former sweethearts.
