“Forget Not This”

Forget not yet the tried intent
Of such a truth as I have meant,
My great travail so gladly spent
         Forget not yet.

Forget not yet when first began
The weary life ye know since whan,
The suit, the service none tell can.
         Forget not yet.

Forget not yet the great assays,
The cruel wrong, the scornful ways,
The painful patience in denays,
         Forget not yet.

Forget not yet, forget not this,
How long ago hath been and is
The mind that never meant amiss,
         Forget not yet.

Forget not then thine own approved,
The which so long hath thee so loved,
Whose steadfast faith yet never moved,
         Forget not this.

-  Thomas Wyatt, 'Forget Not Yet'
