MAYA ANGELOU

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 11:05 AM

The tears came instantly when I heard the news of the passing of Maya Angelou.  As a young girl, Maya inspired me to find my own voice. Rest in heaven beautiful Queen.  I wrote this one for you...


MAYA

It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you

....The Queen

As your words have helped many break through

A generation of lost souls inspired by your truth

You were an extraordinary force of God's creation

Placed hear to speak life to a struggling nation

 

Yes it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you

 

From the CAGED BIRD to the risen you

Your voice a sweet melodic sound

Prolific words moving in rhythmic time

to the beat of your heart

in sync with the needs of a desperate humanity

 

Yes, it's only fitting that I take this time to honor you

 

The loss of you leaves a void

A sinking feeling I can't avoid

Yet I know you would not want tears

For the years

of yourself that you gave to us

You would want us to RISE

Standing in the glow of your light

We will remember you

 

Yes, It's only fitting that I take this time to honor you

Maya Angelou

PHENOMENAL WOMAN

That's you
