Saint or sinner, you may decide
Whatever the truth, the lady has died.
Divisive in death as she was in life 
Some saw deliverance, others just strife.
Leadership’s tough, and she kept a strong hold 
Never deviating from the beliefs that she held.
To get Britain great in the eyes of the world 
She truly believed in the mandate given.
For some it was hell, for others, Heaven.
World leaders respected her, her family revered her 
She’ll go down in history as first lady prime minister.
But remember that man doesn’t have the last word
And the final judgement must be with the Lord For at the last day before Him we’ll stand
And to those he finds worthy, he’ll hold out his hand.

Mrs D Ridley
