1 Henry VI: Talbot says farewell to his son

From William Shakespeare’s Henry VI, part 1 (IV: 5):

TALBOT:

Then here I take my leave of thee, fair son,
Born to eclipse thy life this afternoon.
Come, side by side together live and die.
And soul with soul from France to heaven fly.

(Talbot’s son refuses to flee & leave his father, even though it likely means his death in France.)
