Nay, let me weep, tho' others' tears be spent, Though all eyes dried be, let mine be wet, Unto thy grave I'll pay this yearly rent, Thy lifeless corse demands of me this debt, I owe more tears than ever corse did crave I'll pay more tears than e'er was paid to grave. II. Ne'er let the sun with his deceiving light, Seek to make glad these wat'ry eyes of mine, My sorrow suits with melancholy night, I joy in dole, in languishment I pine, My dearest friend is set, he was my sun, With whom my mirth, my joy, and all is done. III.
