Let it be known my love shall die with you,
For I have given all I have to give.
When you have fled, this love shall not renew,
Unless I have another life to live;
For in your arms I’ve placed my arrant score,
The sweetest treasures of my heart and soul;
And for your sake the burdens that I bore
Seem but small tokens charged for love I hold.
Though time may squander beauty, will and grace,
And memory shall fade to dark of night,
I pray I may forever see your face
When shuttered eyes forbid the dawning light.
Though mortal life and love will not go on,
We two shall live forever in this song.
