Rest Well Among the Angels (A Tribute Poem to Maya Angelou)

Insight to her world
And all that words can be
Most gracious woman

The power of your presence
Your eloquence and your rhyme
Now you lay your head to rest
And forever you will rise!

The lyric, the love
The lessons that were learned
The colors of your rainbow
The beauty in what we've heard.

Those things a person must come to know
So few yet understand
Love was your compass
Your comfort
And the power behind your pen.

Your legacy
Your gift
What you put out in this world
Measured by
Treasured by
Your courage and your words.

You've paved many roads
A legend the world did see
Rest well among the angels
