Star-crossed lovers

In our town, us lovers met,

Our passion grew and grew.

We could see that our hearts were set,

For our love was ever new.


Our gentle touch was no surprise,

And our passion had no end.

Gifted each other from the skies,

We were fashion to a friend.


One day our stars blinked out of line.

Darkness came without a sound.

Where joy had flowed all of the time,

Soon a shadow followed us around.


They watched us fail, they watched us fall.

We moved away to work and play.

Soon there was no love at all,

Our romance soon did fade away.
