Thank you 'Maya'
Thank you 'Maya Angelou'
'On the Pulse of Morning'
There is no loss
just an untimely demise
a river, a creek, a lake
an ocean that speaks
volumes of history
unearthing the life
within you and me
shall we laugh when we think of her yes!
that smile, grin, chastening glare, live in that moment when her silence lifted our hairs
as we awaited the moment when her words would do more, than just pass through the air
like diamond silhouettes dancing on the tips of humanity
shall we leap in our bounty of tranquility,
her words brought to our souls with such power and ease
as a constant breeze delivered profoundly yes!
we shall huddle there in that moment of tenderness, breathing in life, her intellect, she gave so honest and freely
while gesturing as a Queen as she brought to us wisdom of the ages
an inheritance rich in soulful strides of knowledge, culture, history
the legacy of a journey captured in words of sincerity, a paradigm of truth, pondering on what was and what could be
yes! there is no loss... just an untimely demise, we love you Maya, your spirit shall continue to rise
eternity shall cradle you on a soft cloud, because you gave us reason to be proud
thank you Maya for your gift to humanity, may we continue to greet the world
with the same strength, courage, fortitude, and blissful reality
rest in power Queen, thank you for your legacy and cherished memories
