I dye when as I doe not see
Her that is lyfe and all to mee :
And when I see her yet I dye,
In seeing of her crueltie :
So that to mee like miserie is wrought,
Both when I see and when I see her not.
Or shall I speake or silent greeue,
Yet who will silencie releeue :
And if I speake I may offend,
And speaking not my heart will rend :
So that I see to mee it is all one,
Speake I or speake I not, I am vndone.
