Romeo and Juliet
A love forbidden by faults of the past,
a simple love that ended so fast.
A love made quite impossible to bare,
a love so fragile and unfair.
A love we want yet never get,
a love like that of Romeo and Juliet.
Young yet sure of what we do feel,
yet a love that doesn't always seem as real.
A love we feel, a love so wrong,
a love that makes us fail to stay strong.
A love that can't find a way to be,
a love shared between you and me.
A love only we know is true,
a love we hide just for me and you.
A love so fresh, new and pure,
a love that makes us so sure.
Our love is different than they think,
like a delicate flower, fragile and pink.
Our love, forbidden now till the end,
a love for you with whom I'd spend.
A life together, cause only you could be,
a special Romeo just for me.
