LIKE A MOTHER ANGEL

LIKE A MOTHER ANGEL
For Maya Angelou (1928 - 2014)

She knew she was important
Even as a child.
In things she did not understand
So much un-reconciled.

She knew her words had power;
Endured an awful crime.
So much that she chose silence.
Speaking nothing for a time.

This is my poem for Maya.
I climb the distant hill.
And speak to God a "Thank You"
She's gone; we love her still.
