In a country gone mad they lay embraced in death,
A Muslim and a Serb who loved amidst dread.
Racing toward freedom; seeking fulfillment in life,
Their quest for love and marriage ended with a bullets bite.
In a last painful gesture of care and compassion,
She placed her arm over him in a loving expression.
The "differences" they had overcome in their young lives,
Left them lying for days unclaimed by either side.
No lessons have been learned by this tragic example
