If you leave me
You may wipe my name out
From your heart, or feign-
Not to be mine, but be other's;
Yet I'll not blame, nor claim!
'Twas no less to my fate before.
But you must remain in heart
As clear as the Moon of days ago; -
As shining as the Venus, risen
In the dark skies of my soul-
To keep me ever upright sure.
I agree to show a pity smile
If ever you turn back to me;
My heart may break into bits
Or my eyes may shed tears
Yet, O you! let it be, let it be-
Ye, I must curve your face
On the shield of heart 'oft to see
Or, listen 'oft to your buzz eye
On those uneasy summer-days,
I'll be drowned into my tears.
