JH Sayyar's Sonnets

285
My poor heart weeps thinking over your sad state,
Glee less heart, tearful eyes and smile less cheeks,
Do not worry, woes and grief make men great?
With the passage of years, months, days and weeks,
Give your woes and take my all youth pleasure,
Be happy for my sake, I am with your pretty being,
What I say, O MY Rose does think in your leisure,
Think, your life and my life spindle swiftly fleeing,
When I think about your being, my being more sad,
But for me your love, in lone my writing power,
You love sharpens my wisdom looking at you glad
Your holy love is my pen inborn love holy dower

I in your eyes and you in my eyes peacefully sleep,
Thus my sweet Lady in our hearts love canker creep
