This poem is a love poem.  The speaker in the poem is begging his (I assume) love not to leave him.  Here is a brief paraphrase of each stanza.

Will you leave me?  Say no, so that you will not be responsible for making me sad.

Will you leave me when I have loved you so much for so long?  Is your heart that strong?  Say no!

Will you leave me when I have given you my heart and would never take it back?  Say no!

And will you leave me and not have any pity?  Alas for your cruelty?  Say no!
