Juliet’s Fate


Ageless beauty persists among the ruins

Splendid elegance within these castle walls

Time stands ever still for fairest of the fair

Maiden awaiting love’s triumphant return


Standing nighttime vigil in tallest tower

Watchful eye for a torch on the horizon

Ages pass like single fleeting moments

Her lover seemingly never to return


True love denied by the ravages of war

Left all alone to wallow in her solitude

Her weeping can be heard within the breeze

His name cried out by an abandoned heart


Disillusioned by grief, A princess mourns

Clinging to the faintest hope upon hope

That someday her knight will reappear

To rescue her from fairest Juliet’s fate
