8 September 2022 is ‘Black Friday’ for the Royal Family. The world-famous Queen Elizabeth 11 health failed, and she died, at Balmoral Castle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
It was a great mourning day for the Royal family. People of Britain and Scotland, inclusive. The world was not left out. Her first son, Prince Charles, immediately King Charles 111 on her death, was touched by grieving for his beloved. So is her only daughter Princess Anne, Princess Royal. The event witnessed the 'saddest' moment for Prince Williams, her first grandson, or King Charles 111 first son.
In this article, I narrate a poem that naturally related to the funeral ceremony of Queen Elizabeth 11.
The Death of a Saint
- 'To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to born, and a time to die’ King James Bible Ecclesiastes 3:1-2.
- ‘Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints’ King James Bible Psalm 116: 15.
- ‘The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death’ King James Bible 1 Corinthians 15: 26.
- ‘O death where is thy sting? O grave thy victory’ King James Bible 1 Corinthians 15: 55.
- ‘Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return to God who gave it’ King James Bible Ecclesiastes 12: 7.
The beloved Queen
Queen Elizabeth Rest In Peace
As the Sun, rise and goes down on the horizon,
Queen Elizabeth rises and goes home.
Queen Elizabeth is laid to rest in peace.
Dust to dust and ash to ash,
but in a Royal vault.
The Royal vault symbolized mother earth, not heaven.
Her spirit returns to God her Creator.
But the body awaits the resurrection morning.
Along with other human beings,
Kings great and small,
and, her subjects gone before her.
Queen Elizabeth reunites with her father, mother, and 'beloved' husband.
She reunited with her cherished family,
Still Royal in death!
God create the spirit.
The spirit is eternal,
And when death strikes
The body rests from all tolls,
with no pain, but sleep and rest.
Rest in Peace, Queen Elizabeth 11.
