A modern day princess in a tragic land
A precious flower destined to be damned
A teacher, a child from a small town
With amazing grace she stepped into the crown
A beautiful vision covered with lace and pearls
A perfect bride this virginal girl
But the castle was dark and barren of love
And duty called for a more important cause
She stepped into her role with class and style
And bore her prince his first man child
She wore her heart on her sleeve
Craved for acceptance instead was treated like a disease
As suicide attempts and her bulimia grew
The court was embarrassed further away they withdrew
But the people loved her she could do no wrong
So the prince tried again another beloved son
With her children she did grow
She extended her heart and much more
When the walls around her came tumbling in
She found her strength and really began to sing
They threatened to take her children away
Divorce is not acceptable in the kingdom even today
But she stood up to armies and the press
And showed the world courage under great duress
A prayer goes out for a great woman indeed
For the paparrazi’s hounded and watched her bleed
Farewell our fair maiden you were a vision to behold
You will not be forgotten your story will forever more be told
