Forever Young

I can't believe that it is 10 years since Diana left this planet.
It seems like yesterday when the news flashed across the TV screen.

Those handsome boys, mourning their Mom.

How sad it was to see them walking to the church
for the services.

How sad it has been over the years to watch them grow and know she couldn't.

Elton Johns beautiful tribute

"Candle in the Wind"

Goodbye England's rose;
may you ever grow in our hearts.
You were the grace that placed itself
where lives were torn apart.
You called out to our country,
and you whispered to those in pain.
Now you belong to heaven,
and the stars spell out your name.

And it seems to me you lived your life
like a candle in the wind:
never fading with the sunset
when the rain set in.
And your footsteps will always fall here,
along England's greenest hills;
your candle's burned out long before
your legend ever will.

Loveliness we've lost;
these empty days without your smile.
This torch we'll always carry
for our nation's golden child.
And even though we try,
the truth brings us to tears;
all our words cannot express
the joy you brought us through the years.

Goodbye England's rose,
from a country lost without your soul,
who'll miss the wings of your compassion
more than you'll ever know.

Diana, Princess of Wales 1961-1997
