An Elegy to a great queen


The long reign has come to an end
The messenger of death God did send
In her lifetime she was a legend
She had an infectious smile and company jocund
As a young girl coronated to the throne Golden
And ruled the nation and with all the time she spend
And many a help to the needy she did lend
Life was not too kind to her till the end
She lived to prove that toughness is not being tough
But get going even when all is rough as the road of life had many a bend
Ever in life did extend
A helping hand without even thinking for a second
That was her greatness and never did offend
Any soul And was ever to all the best ever friend
Today the whole world cries as her coffin does descend
Into the grave after a long vigil from the time she did ascend
As the queen of the iconic land which has been a witness to the life of many a legend
Rest in peace dear queen
You reside in our hearts and never dead
This is what I had said
to all after the news in the tabloid I had read
The world shall never forget you till our blood is red
You gave many their daily bread
And they are ever grateful for having been fed.

    It's a shame some people don't understand, She was the best. I can only imagine what sacrifices she made.
    God save the Queen.
