I never saw it coming

This tragic love story

Romeo and Juliet

Our death and our glory

*

You were just a boy

And I was just a girl

Our destinies entwined

As is the will of this world

*

I remember your hair

Silken ebony

As it mixed with mine

Golden filigree

*

I know your scent

Of spice and summer breeze

It clung to the pillows

When you took your leave

*

Your smile was sunshine

Your touch was rain

Your love was eternal

A passionate flame

*

A Life has been been sundered

The fire smothered dry

Yet unbeknowest to them

The embers still lie

*

Our lives weren't forfieted

For a hopeless dream

Our love lives still

Open and serene

*

My beloved Romeo

We've fought our war

When you were mine

And I was yours

*
