Thus with a kiss I die.*

*Romeo’s last words from ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Shakespeare

Eyes.. never could see you shine
Lips.. they never tasted your lips’ wine
Arms.. never could embrace as you were mine
Heart was where you were adored and shrined

Paths were silent as we walked on and on
Flowers never bloomed yet fragrance was born
Dashing laughs faded ; the foot prints were gone
Amongst thousand melodies, a voice, so alone

Grips are tight- you may laugh, never sigh
Flashes are the memories- so forget, don’t fight
Guests were we, in a lifelong cry
Thus with a kiss I die, I die.
