Good residents of Verona, we're right here to grieve the lack of a treasured little one of God. Romeo Montague, a younger man who was like a son to me has handed away attributable to a sequence of misfortunate occasions. Though Romeo handed far too quickly, we are able to nonetheless keep in mind the legacy Romeo has left us, and respect the numerous classes he has taught us. I first knew Romeo as somewhat boy, born right into a household in a harsh, long-lasting feud with the Capulet family.
Through the years, I served as a mentor to him. He would usually come to my cell to confide his issues to me.
It was via these talks that I befriended him and instilled upon him the basics of life. I taught him to ignore the battle between his household and the Capulets, and to at all times purchase new pals, not enemies. Romeo turned out to be a well mannered, variety, and caring younger man. He was additionally a really solitary younger man; he would quite take walks via the sycamore timber than run round along with his pals.
In the future, Romeo visited me so as to search my recommendation. He was lovesick and depressed that Rosaline didn’t return the love he felt for her, and that she determined to turn into a nun.
Sympathetically, I recommended him and suggested him, as his pals Mercutio and Benvolio did, to search out one other girl in Verona. Romeo was nonetheless lovesick, however earlier than lengthy, Romeo was again but once more; this time barring excellent news. Romeo had discovered a brand new love, and this time, the sensation of affection was mutual. I keep in mind Romeo saying such phrases as, “Then plainly know my coronary heart’s pricey love is about on the honest daughter of wealthy Capulet: As mine on hers, so hers is about on mine; And all mixed, save what thou should mix” (2. . 57-60).
Romeo had an extremely deep love for Juliet. He helps me to understand the little issues in life, and I'm very grateful to have been blessed sufficient to have been so near him. I used to be so moved by Romeo’s phrases, and fervour for his love, that I agreed to marry him and Juliet secretly. Romeo was at all times a persistent younger man; generally impulsive and irrational however at all times decided and caring. I used to be coronary heart damaged after I heard the information of Romeo’s banishment and Mercutio’s loss of life.
Not lengthy after Romeo’s departure to Mantua, Juliet got here to me, begging me to create an answer to cease her impending marriage to Paris. I, being so near Romeo, got here up with a plan to have the 2 lovers spend their lives collectively. It appeared destiny had already made up its thoughts, as a result of each try I made to assist, in the end result in the demise of the 2 lovers. Whereas Romeo’s loss of life is horrible and unfair, there are some optimistic issues we are able to take out of it. The feud between the Montagues and the Capulets is over now, which can guarantee peace all through the magnificent metropolis of Verona.
In his life, Romeo confirmed how highly effective the sensation of affection is; we are able to all be taught one thing from his braveness, perseverance, and his optimistic angle even when nothing gave the impression to be going his method. Romeo wouldn’t need all of you to grieve his loss of life; we must always all attempt to keep in mind Romeo as he was, and acknowledge that he's in a greater place now along with his real love. My coronary heart goes out to the household of the Montagues at this woeful time; all who knew him will miss Romeo. Could you relaxation in peace, Romeo.
