Juliet’s Elegy

Child of mine who I claim
Not by birth but by love
The weather is great and yet it rains
I can hear the mourning dove
Telling others our emotional pains
Although I never told you this
Everything I ever did was for your own good
A marriage that I never missed
The first step to adulthood
With feud from sides you took the risk
Brought you to your early death
But I don't blame them
I blame fate for your last breathe
For star-crossed lovers brought a direct sum
You were to be wed to another man
A gentleman so fine
You insisted another plan
A friendly way to decline
Through a confession you began
Not knowing what your future holds
You held this secret inside
And therefore your death is foretold
