Goodbye Lilibet

Goodbye Lilibet

She was so tired! She was even too tired to smile as she sank back on her bed. She closed her eyes gratefully and relaxed.
“Please, oh please,” she thought, “just leave me alone. Just this once!”
It was so peaceful and quiet.
Then a voice she had loved for so long spoke to her: “Get up, Lilibet, there are some people who want to see you.”
She opened her eyes and there was her beloved Philip with his hand reaching out to her.
She took it and rose from the bed. She wasn’t tired at all. In fact, she felt like she did at eighteen.
They began to walk together and she noticed she was walking on a cloud. And there, at the top of the cloud, she saw three people smiling at her and holding out their arms to her.
“Welcome home, Lilibet” they said.
And there they were, just as she had always known they would be God, the Father; His son, Jesus, and Jesus’ mother Mary.
She was at peace at last.
