A Forbidden Love

A Forbidden Love* The young Romina died When she was 14 years old She knew that love was not a sin As she had always been told. She believed that her suitor Could help her to feel free Though older than her Her father would never agree. Love should be the reason For Romina's conception But when love is always absent A loved daughter is an exception. Romina was a victim Of her father's brutality It was an honour crime Never accused of being guilty After Romina's death Her suitor forgot her name His love for Romina Became a feeling of shame. * In memory of Romina Ashrafi. Raul Máximo da Silva Portugal
