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 King's and Queens,

are Monarch's 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 peoples friend.


Thank you for the years,

for all your time and love.

Now I am one of two again,

in our Palace up above.
J.Boyle (heartfelt)



I saw it on Facebook and loved it but only seen hate for it on mumsnet :( I think it’s beautiful ❤️

If there is indeed an afterlife I imagine the queen has paused her walk off with Philip and doubled back to haunt the author.

I loved the Queen and I'm heartbroken by her loss.

But I'm sorry that poem really makes me cringe.

Mawkish and riddled with errors.

The queen would have despised this emotional incontinence.

You've only posted that because you know it's dreadful, mawkish shite.

I feel like I've eaten 5kg of candyfloss and bathed in Tizer after reading that.

It's atrocious! Not only is it utterly nauseating but it's also really badly written.

Bloody hell, I wish the thick poets society could have given it a rest for once.

It's OK OP. You probably have 'live laff luv' on your walls and like Minions too.

I can’t deal with the grammar and the fact that the queen would just never say all that

It's so mawkish with terrible grammar.

Mawkish, dreadful shit. Even worse when accompanied by a cartoon of the queen and Paddington.

It’s a shit poem not worthy of her maj.

It’s having its moment of fame by having the piss ripped out of it on Twitter.

What a steaming pile of badly written shite.

I don’t actually want to personally insult the OP.

But I was wondering based on this comment: If you did a study of people who liked this poem, people who had items that said, “Live, Laugh, Love,” in their homes, and people who liked Minions, what DO you think the overlap would be? 75%? 85%? 100%?

Jesus wept. Twee bilge

There are some lovely, moving poems about death and loss. This is not one of them.

It’s twee doggerel.

John Donne’s marvellous poem about death is much more apt.

Good. That's all it's good for.

I quite like it, its harmless and quite sweet.
I don't have live life, love or any interest in the minions.
