Glittering lights extinguished and we’re left with the dark,
As Dame Elizabeth Taylor died on the 23rd of March.
She was a veritable legend, an icon, a gem;
Celebrated worldwide, loved by ladies and men.
Born on February the 27th, in 1932
Becoming a Hollywood Great was what she was destined to do.
From British beginnings, America beckoned
And she became a force with whom to be reckoned.
Along with her career, she had a rich family life;
She gave the world 4 children and was eight-times a wife.
10 great-grandchildren followed after she turned 39
And our thoughts go to her family at this difficult time.
Actress and mother,grandmother, wife and friend;
How sad this lady’s life has now come to an end.
Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of fame
And the world now unites to say goodbye to the Dame.
