Cruel behold my heavy ending
Language: English 
Cruel behold my heavy ending
See what you wrought by your disdaining,
Causeless I die, Love still attending
Your hopeless pity of my complaining.
Suffer those eyes which thus have slain me
With speed to end their killing power:
So shall you prove how Love doth pain me
And see me die still yower.
