A poem for Diana
The story behind the poem

I am a mathematician and as a result have never really taken any notice of current affairs or history or the monarchy. However, for some reason I was always interested in Diana, the Princess of Wales. I thought she had an air of sincerity and grace and for that I appreciated her and her work greatly. She died the night of my mother's wedding day which brought her death into plain view to me. It hit a nerve which I was unaware existed and made me feel deeply sad. She did so much and and helped so many people. Within a few weeks I had written this poem and I then submitted it to a school magazine. I was only thirteen when I wrote it but even now, ten years on, when I read it I feel all those emotions I had back then. I miss her ..... the world misses her!
