I like the message behind this very much and am absolutely floored by the last four lines...they are wonderful. I've taken the liberty of adjusting the format and adding a few words here and there, just a suggestion. I'm still not real comfortable with lines 5&6, but really don't have any suggestions for them at this point. Like I said, the message behind this one is a good one...nicely done.
In a park near where I dwell,
I met a man I knew so well.
He came and stole my heart from me.
Now that man has set me free.
He sat a girl upon his knee,
Told her things he never told me.
I ran home to my bed,
Told my father nothing was said.
In my room which in he broke,
He found me hanging from a rope.
"Daughter dear what have you done ?
You've killed yourself for one man's son."
Dig my grave and dig it deep,
Marble stone from head to feet.
And on my stone please place a dove,
To show the world I DIED FOR LOVE.
