The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

To Lady Diana The Princess Of Wales


Alice C. Bateman

If I could write you a letter in Heaven

Here's what I think it would say

That your absence has made my heart sadder

And I've missed you, every day


If I could write you a letter in Heaven

This might be the way it would sound

The world is a grimmer, less colourful place

Because you're no longer around


We miss you, Diana

You were a friend

To one billion people, or two


We love you, Diana

And now that you're gone

What is this poor world to do?


We poison each other and poison ourselves

Our children and even our pets

We're killing ourselves and calling it pleasure

With nasty things like cigarettes


We needed you, Di

And you've gone away

And no one could e'er take your place

At the front of the crowd

In this silly old world

Of this silly old, sad human race
