We are not unfamiliar with love; Thou know'st the rules thereof, and so do I. A full commitment’s all I can think of-- Thou wouldst not so receive from other guys. My object in this speech is a request To tell thee of affections that I feel; For heaven’s name above would so be blest If thou turn’st not from my sincere appeal! I vow that I will never give thee up, Nor let thy dear visage come crashing down; I will not run in circles as a pup And leave thee by thyself alone to drown. I will not cause a tear to hence be shed, Nor leave my sense and bid to thee adieu, Nor spin deceits and woes to vex thy head-- To thy good I vow always to be true! As Phoebus to and fro hath crossed the sky, Thy heart hath ached, but thou wouldst never tell-- Yet we both know what thy face doth belie, And so our game continues as a spell. If thou wouldst think to ask me how I fare, O, fie! thy question wounds me! Be not trite, For just as soon thou wouldst before me swear That never in thy life hast thou had sight! I’ll never give thee up, nor let thee fall; I’ll run to thee if thou but my name call!
