Queen Elizabeth II


I felt it important to share with my followers my love and devotion to our monarchy, and in particular our very special Queen and leader, Queen Elizabeth II.

This amazing lady and example of Christian faith and servanthood, has been the only monarch I have ever known thus far in my 64 years of life. It seems very strange now to sing ‘God Save the King’ instead of Queen. I only wish I could travel to London to see her lie in state or even attend her funeral but sadly, due to personal circumstances, that isn’t going to be possible. But I can pay tribute to her in this blog. This is my poem for her.

Queen Elizabeth II, a nation’s Queen and mine
Your reign sublime and dutiful
Servant to all. Only Queen in my life to date,
We thought you invincible, but death could not wait
To have you.

We mourn your loss but know it cost you
Everything to serve, like He,
Gazing up to see where you have gone
We spy a rainbow over Windsor Castle
And know that you are home, death no owner of the faithful.

Living now in changing days your example shows a way
To fashion a life of service to the people that we meet
Showing them the same respect as you, knowing that one day,  
We will take our place in glory because of the story
Of Jesus, King of Kings.
