Romeo, oh Romeo

Romeo, oh Romeo
Where for art thou?
Art thou in the castle?
-Nay my fair Juliet.
Art thou in a distant land?
-Nay my love.
Art thou in love with another?
-Nay dearest one.
Art thou ignoring my cries?
-Nay sweetheart.
Art thou wandering alone?
-Nay my darling.
Art thou in the company of our Lord?
-Nay my beautiful angel.
Art thou lost and afraid?
-Nay my fair maiden.
Then where for art thou Romeo? I've grown tired of guessing. You seem to be no where. Have you left me here to just simply call your name and receive no reply? What kind of cruel trick is that?
-There is no trick at all my love. Even whence thou cannot see me, I am always with you. Search for me in your heart and I will most certainly be there. I will never leave you. I love you my beautiful Juliet.

This is a pretty good poem; I can't seem to find anything wrong with it.

Great job! :)
