Romeo and Juliet

I know the stars are crossed and I’m a fool
who put his faith in fate, but I was wrong
You showed me that you love me, and the rule
of love, regardless of the stars is strong
enough to overcome the pain I feel,
enough to overcome my brush with death
Our love is not a fantasy; it’s real
“I love you” is the reason I have breath
I felt you when you waited by the door
I felt the words you used within your verse
I loved it when you said, “I love you more.”
I missed your heart, but know you missed me worse
My Juliet, I love you, I’ll become
your Romeo. You wait and I will come.
