If Romeo had known

The death would be his own

Would he have regret

Loving his Juliet


If love had not made him blind

That she would follow him in kind

Would he have willing let go

To keep it from being so


If good counsel be heard

Could true love be deferred

Would he choose to leave

Her life given in reprieve


Or was his fate undeniable

His love un-survivable

Was it always meant to be this

Forsaken by the very first kiss


His love unbound by time

Drawn as a circle, not a line

His love would stay the test

In this lifetime and the next

    This is absolutely beautiful, Brad! ๐Ÿ˜ I don’t think Romeo would regret anything that led him to his Juliette. They are so connected, not even death could keep them a part. Your words make me swoon. ๐Ÿ˜

    your question posed so beautifully. I would think he would do it all over again just to have been with her, even if their time was short

        Itโ€™s my pleasure! Exactly! Your title said it all. This round of chemoโ€™s side effects are a bit more pronounced~some more challenges that are keeping me from
        Being as productive. Chemo brain fog is real (which doesnโ€™t help my โ€œnormalโ€ brain that struggles at times, lol). The words are in my heart โค๏ธ, I just canโ€™t always get them out. But I have hope and am still winning! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฅฐ love and hugs, Brad!

  4. I believe that one can never regret true love, no matter the cost, even knowing the cost beforehand.

    Lots of “what ifs” in life.

    What a lovely take on such a treasured romantic play and a love so special and dear. I think they would act the same over and over again. Their love such a rich love which ended so tragically. Your words are so lovely Brad. There is something to be said about one’s first love. I have never forgotten mine and the intensity of it. It is a treat to read your words again. Big hugs, Jonikins
