If it be so that I forsake thee


If it be so that I forsake thee
As banished from thy company,
Yet my heart, my mind, and mine affection
Shall still remain in thy perfection,
And right as thou list so order me.
But some would say in their opinion
Revulsed is thy good intention.
Then may I well blame thy cruelty
If it be so.
But myself I say on this fashion:
I have her heart in my possession,
And of itself there cannot, perdie,
By no means love an heartless body;
And on my faith good is the reason
