WHO ARE THE LUCKY PEOPLE? (written in 2001)


I was delighted to read of the acknowledgement received by Julie Callaghan to her commendable

effort to communicate her feelings to Her Majesty The Queen for this Platinum Jubilee Year and 

how it brought back a memory of my own effort when The Queen Mother endured the need for  

an operation and a donor’s blood very late in her long life over twenty years ago.  Here it is.

……………………………………………………..

Who are the lucky people

Who kissed Sweet Royalty’s hand

By lying in a lonely room

Their lifeblood in a strand

 

Who are the lucky people

Who touched Sweet Royalty’s heart

By offering up their own lifeforce

For a much loved life apart

 

Who are the lucky people

Who share  Sweet Royalty’s kind

By selfless giving, selfless time,

Other lives always in mind.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MA’AM!

………………………………………………………

The reply from her lady-in-waiting Lady Gordon Lennox, finished “Her Majesty bids me send you her

sincere thanks and good wishes.” – indicating that the content had indeed been read by The Queen Mother.

Very rewarding to its author.
