Phillip came to me today, and said it was time to go.

I looked at him and smiled, as I whispered that “I know”

I then turned and looked behind me, and saw I was asleep.

All my family were around me, and I could hear them weep.

I gently touched each shoulder, with Phillip by my side.

Then I turned away and walked, with My Angel guide.

Phillip held my hand, as he lead the way, to a world where Kings and Queens, are Monarchs every day.

I was given a crown to wear or a Halo known by some.

The difference is up here, they are worn by everyone.

I felt a sense of peace, my reign had seen its end.

70 years I had served my Country, as the people's friend.

Thank you for the years, for all your time and love.

Now I am one of two again, in our place up above.
