Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42).  The Poetical Works.  1880.
Songs and Epigrams
To his Lover to look upon him
ALL in thy look my life doth whole depend,
Thou hidest thyself, and I must die therefore;
But since thou mayst so easily help thy friend,
Why dost thou stick to salve that thou madest sore?
Why do I die since thou mayst me defend?        5
And if I die, thy life may last no more;
  For each by other doth live and have relief,
  I in thy look, and thou most in my grief.
