A Queen Has Passed This Way

A Queen has Passed This Way

A Ping!
A glance at my phone
and a tear slid
involuntarily from my eye,
a weight pressed
upon my chest.

A woman I have never met
yet, over decades
has touched me
through her regal,
unwavering devotion
to her people and her kingdom,
         has died.

Her long reign
through prosperity, wars,
and a world on the brink
was met with her stoic
perseverance, generosity, and grace.

A queen in spirit and ascension,
displayed to the world
what dignity and honor
should look like.
Judi Van Gorder
