    If I do lose thee, I do lose a thing
    That none but fools would keep: a breath thou art,

    I would interpret that to mean that he's saying:

    Losing you would be like losing something only a stupid person would hold onto. You're nothing more than a lifeless breath who listens too much (and cares too much about the opinion of) random people who don't actually matter.

    I don't actually know the context of it so I might be wrong, but that's how I would read it.
