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.

The philosophy attached with the saga of these immortal lovers has been beautifully captured and underlined in this poem. Great work. The following lines are just outstanding: But for their family's sake / Decided not to stay in touch /... Both try hard not to cry.

a few typos, but a very interesting story. i think i missed the part from when they were young and when they were old. i tend to agree with margaret alice's comment 'sentence': today I know the alternative of living a quiet little life is not necessarily better; life without quality is not much worth so I approve of the play - thanks for sharing. i liked your bio; IT seemed like some poems. nice. bri ;)

The Time YOU won the Member Poem Of The Day, I was not active yet here. I did not know the way how to LOGIN to give responses.

I am happy that you are on PH now.A sublimest poem, dear Elena!

Loving pairs are certainly victim of society but they are all alive till the creation of life. Thanks for sharing. Regards.
