our queen

our queen

was made of granite


and an indelible faith

that gave us hope

our queen

was made of loyalty

truth and endurance

and 70 years

upon the throne

our queen

was the commonwealth

and the church of england

she wore them proudly

like a badge of honour

our queen

was the matriarch of a nation

that faced grief sorrow crisis

and the sting of betrayal

yet bowed to none

our queen witnessed

the brutal devastation

and the horror of war

and pledged herself

to a life of service

our queen

was home and family

trees and horses and dogs

and a lesson on how to live

a good life

our queen was

motherhood and monarchy

and little red boxes

that arrived every day

except on christmas


our queen

was paddington bear

dinner on sunday

and a cup of tea with a slice

of chocolate biscuit cake

our queen was an icon

defender of the faith

and a friend to all

known and welcomed

throughout the world

our queen was a trailblazer

an original

who like this very moment

in time

can never be replaced

our queen was a light that shone

in the hearts in the minds

and in the will of the people

may her memory forever shine

upon the throne of england
