Lovers infinitenesse.
If yet I have not all thy love,
Deare, I shall never have it all,
I cannot breathe one other sigh, to move;
Nor can intreat one other teare to fall;
And all my treasure, which should purchase thee,
Sighs, teares, and oathes, and letters I have spent;
Yet no more can be due to mee,
Then at the bargaine made was ment,
If then thy gift of love were partiall,
That some to me, some should to others fall,
Deare, I shall never have It All.
Or if then thou gavest me All,
All was but All, which thou hadst then
But if in thy heart, since, there be or shall,
New love created be by other men,
Which have their stocks intire, and can in teares,
In sighs, in oathes, in letters outbid me,
This new love may beget new feares,
For this loue was not vowed by thee,
And yet it was, thy gift being generall,
The ground, thy heart was mine, what ever shall
Grow there, deare, I should have it all.
Yet I would not have all yet,
He that hath all can have no more,
And since my love doth every day admit
