Hi there!

I've seen two sentence types for "You have my heart."

Tá tú mo chroí and Tá mo chroí agat. Is there one that is better than the other? Or more "correct"?

Alternately, is there a better way to phrase it that is more appropriate?

Thanks!

Forget about the first one. It's flat out wrong and contains a classic grammatical error often made by beginners.

The second one works, in my opinion.

Wait for more input to be sure.

Yup. The first one is just plain wrong.

The second one is correct, though it's not the only way to say it. An expression I particularly like is "Tá mo chroí istigh ionat" (My heart is within you).

Definitely wait for more!

You might consider this possible translation:

Is leatsa mo chroí

Literally: My heart is yours
