Of a timeless love I speak,
Washed to shore by ageless tides,
Leaving imprints that will last a lifetime,
Never to be erased, never to be forgotten.
A smitten love that begged no introduction,
It began once upon a time,
A Princess and a Prince, a Royal encounter,
A story like that found in books that spoke of love,
The one with a beginning, with never an ending.
I saw her eyes light up as she gazed at him,
He whispered something to her with love light shining,
I understood her heart was his notwithstanding,
I understood that he was hers unyielding.
It was the kind of love that made great endings,
A love that was forged by great understanding,
For in this world of much tribulation,
His love was her perfect distraction.
It is a beautiful love that is shared by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, one that lasted seven decades.
How absolutely amazing is that?
Well, it is sad to hear of HRH Prince Philip’s passing. May His Soul Rest in Peace.
