The Power Of Love



Romeo and Juliet Their love prompted their society to fret And led to their suicidal death In one of the greatest love stories yet Lancelot and Guinevere They had an adulterous love affair Which demonstrated very clear Her unfaithfulness to her husband dear Paris of Troy and Helen In his love for her he was so smitten This led to his country's ruin And also cost the lives of many men Anthony and Cleopatra He followed in the footsteps of Caesar Who was also her son's father And he made this foreign queen his lover Samson and Delilah He was well known as a strong warrior Until she became his barber After which he lost his strength and power David and Bathsheba Through loving her, he became a sinner And turned into a murderer Despite his image as a great ruler Shah Jahal and Mumtaz Mahal Among his wives he loved her best of all Their love he made monumental And embodied it in the Taj Mahal
