Romeo And Juliet Nowdays May Keep Alive Poem by Elena Sandu

Romeo And Juliet Nowdays May Keep Alive

Rating: 3.7

Romeo and Juliet
Loved each other much
But for their family's sake,
Kept out of touch.

Unfulfilled love
Day by day grown
No life lost in vain
Nobody had a grieving big pain.

... time away... Quite a while after
Romeo and Juliet would meet again
And some tea with no sugar
Happily shared.

Over a hundred pictures, (family stuff)
They talked, cried, and laughed.
It looked like
Were having the most happy time
Of their entire life!

But time's running fast
Day almost fades
To drive her back home
Her granddaughter came.

With tears in eyes
A kiss on one cheek
Few hugs and good byes
Both trying hard not to cry.

With a last glance at his sparkling eyes
She Gently touched his cheek
Then, mistakenly like,
Runned out with his walking stick.

Not much time to pass
From this world, ready to depart
With one of her last breath
She asked for the cane.

Her hand clenched on cane
Embraced it and asked
To be kept by her side
In the grave.

Then kissed good bye
All family: one by one
And last, with a smile,
..The Cane.
