IF THOU MUST LOVE ME

IF THOU MUST LOVE ME

1 min 292 1 min 292

If thou must love me....Well!

Then love me not like some lover from a Shakespearean play

Who words of love doth proudly spell

But his actions don't portray.


Nay; love me not like Bassanio

Who his friend's life did'st stake

Recognizes not his own true love

When a little disguise she makes.


Nay; love me not like Macbeth

Who stabbed the king for his throne

"She provoked me ", he shamelessly said

When mercy he himself should have shown


Nay; love me not like Othello

Who trusted not his wife

His inferiority complex held him low

When he stifled out her life.


Nay; love me not like Ferdinand

Who under a spell did'st love

Because in real life when such tempests end

Love flies out.... like from Noah's ark flew the dove


Nay; love me not like Romeo

Who secretly married Juliet

I'd rather have you face the world

And I'll be happy that we met.


So love me not like one from some story or a play

Let love be there deep in your heart and not for mere display

And let the love bells in my heart next when loudly chime

Sing of your clear transparent love that will last me a lifetime.
