1.
Wilt thou unkind now leave me
weepinge, my liefe decaied
and death so fast approchinge
and yet by thy smile is staid?

2.
If my faithfull desert you seeke to requite
Why alas doe I live disdained?
But if you take delight
cruell to see me payned,
ah thou my hart hast reft me
and now noe sence of paine is left me.

3.
Death sure I cannot feele hurtles ungreeved
nor can I live of hart deprived.
If my deadly panges only content thee,
with those sweet lipps that slue mee
new liefe infuse and then torment me.
