Farewell to 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

Farewell To Love by Michael Drayton (1563-1631)
