With you that do love me


With you that do love me
I do not know what to expect
and without you I will miss my whole life
and you are in every night and day.
Now that it’s already becoming late summer
there are the most beautiful flowers that bloom,
and the years that do remain are coming too quickly to their end
when my whole life comes to fulfilment.
Continually you do bring sunshine
and you give me an urge to live,
while you bring the joys of happiness and pain
when I do really know the depths of love
and I wonder how long this summer will last
before our days grow faint with the winter.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
