They were star-crossed dreamers,
who thought they could make it so;
They believed that love would conquer all,
and that their love would grow;
But the power of dissenting families
is greater than the lovers could know
and in the end there was no hope
for Juliet….and her Romeo.
We’re left to wonder if the parents
regretted their course and cried
when the star-crossed dreamers slept
forever, together, in suicide.
