In Tribute To Maya Angelou - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

She was my unmet sister.
I loved the wonder of her voice
Always so loud and clear.
I can hear it now, even in death's silence.
She speaks words of wisdom,
Heard around the world.
Words that encouraged, to give yourself
Another chance to do better...now
That you know better.
Her words of truth, in poetry, are profound
Pouring from a heart that has known
Trials and tribulations...knowing how to forgive,
One of life's best lessons.
Her words ring out to kings, presidents and
Masses of people, from every status in life.
She was blessed with many friends
And in this we shared another 'sisterhood'.
My elder by 4 years, states and cities apart.
I wish I had met her and had shared some
Poetic thoughts.
She would have recognized a sister, we both
Being poets who loved to sing.
She will be long remembered and cherished
As a gifted poet, her words lingering forever.
