Especially the sacred hour

Maya Angelou Rest In Peace Kego Onyido Poem At Maya's Feet

Maya Angelou (1928-2014), Author, Poet, Activist, Phenomenal Woman, Educationist, Wise Soul, Rest In Perfect Peace.

Of gifted, wise role models and of curious young minds uncovered

Of passions re-kindled, of paths revisited and of dreams re-discovered

Of phenomenal creatures who bless our paths and go off gently in peaceful sleep

Their purpose not that we mourn, rather that we awaken to life, celebrate and take the leap.

Of passions re-kindled, of paths revisited and of dreams re-discovered

Of phenomenal creatures who bless our path and go off to peaceful sleep
