Farewell Love

Since there’s not help
come let us kiss and part
Nay, I am done,
you get no more of me
And I am glad, yea
glad with all my heart,
That thus so cleanly
I myself can free
Shake hands for ever,
cancel all our vows,
And when we meet
at any time again,
Be it not seen in
either of our brows
That we, one jot of
former love retain.
Now, at the last gasp
of love’s latest breath,
When his pulse failing,
passion speechless lies,
When faith is kneeling
by his bed of death,
And innocence is
closing up his eyes,
Now, if thou woulds’t
when all have given him over,
From death to life
Thou might’st him yet recover.
