"When he shall die," said Juliet,
"Please take my Romeo,
And cut him out in little stars
That will keep the skies aglow

And every time I look upwards
And think of what might have been
I'll fall in love with Romeo
Who at night can only be seen

Give me my Romeo and when he shall die
He will bring beauty to us all
His face forever preserved in
The darkness of heaven's walls."

"When he shall die," ended Juliet
It is only right
That when they look up to the skies
All the world will be in love with night.

The author's comments:

"Give me my Romeo, and when he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars.
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night."
- Romoe and Juliet, William Shakespeare
Act III Scene II
