I prithee send me back my heart,
Since I can not have thine:
For if from yours you will not part,
Why then shouldst thou have mine?

Yet now I think on 't, let it lie;
To find it, were in vain:
For th' hast a thief in either eye
Would steal it back again.

Why should two hearts in one breast lie,
And yet not lodge together?
O Love, where is thy sympathy,
If thus our breasts thou sever?

But love is such a mystery
I cannot find it out:
For when I think I'm best resolved,
I then am in most doubt.

Then farewell care, and farewell woe,
I will no longer pine:
For I'll believe I have her heart,
As much as she has mine.

- Sir John Suckling (possibly?)
