Princess Diana…


Her zest for life

Gave hope to the weary

Her eagerness to please

Helped the lost on their journey


Her fervor for love

Ignited a desire for passion

Her devotion to peace

Caused many to show compassion


Her concern for the needy

Lifted the spirits of the downtrodden

Her inclination to overcome

Spread optimism to the forgotten


Her regard for humanity

Swept through the world

Her desire to triumph

Brought unity unfurled


Her vigor of spirit

Has never been erased

Her dedication to purpose

Enabled the disgraced


Her enduring soul

Still floods the earth with light

Her ability to love

Was such a beautiful sight

  4. Thanks Dorinda…. She really was amazing. My sister was named after her, and because of this, I have always had a particular interest in her life. It was heart wrenching to see her go….

  5. I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was at work and the radio announced it. I stood there, not really believing she was gone….

  6. Yeah…. was like a knife to the heart. I’ve never been so sad to see somebody die, that I had never even had a chance to meet. 😦
