I wrotet thithis poem af­terft Pprincess i Diana’s death

There was a young girl whose dream came true, She mar­ried a prince as very few do. Af­ter a while she gave birth to a son and heir, A bonny boy for her to share. This lad, not know­ing what his life would bring, Had to be trained as a fu­ture king. Later on, along came Harry, And he be­came a prince with a huge load to carry. Now both these boys are a credit to mum, With all the train­ing she’s done. Her char­ity work put her to the test, But she car­ried on and al­ways gave it her best. As life went on and her boys grew, Their times to­gether were so few! Then she and her prince were no longer a cou­ple, They di­vorced af­ter lots of heart­break and trou­ble. Then came that tragic day, The world mourned from far away. Her life was taken in a dread­ful crash, When she was forced to make a quick dash. Now Wills and Harry have no mother, In her place, there’ll be no other. She fi­nally has been laid to rest, At her old home, she loved the best.
