Sweet stay awhile, why will you rise?
The light you see comes from your eyes:
Day breaks not; it is my heart,
To think that you and I must part.
Stay, O stay, or else my joys must fade.

Dear, let me die in this faire breast:
Far sweeter than the Phoenix nest.
Love raise desire by his charms
Within thine arms
And let thy blissful kiss cherish
my joys, Stay, O stay,
or else my joys must perish.
