O that you were yourself! But, love, you are   No longer yours than you yourself here live.Against this coming end you should prepare,  And your sweet semblance to some other give.  So should that beauty which you hold in lease  Find no determination; then you wereYourself again after yourself’s decease,  When your sweet issue your sweet form should bear.  Who lets so fair a house fall to decay,  Which husbandry in honor might uphold  Against the stormy gusts of winter’s day
