Oh Maya!

Like a bird
You flew into our lives
Sprinkling words of wisdom
Epitaphs of note
Giving us a piece of your mind
Planting a sense of self
Cultivating hope
Your words are still with us
Your body gone
Your spirit is so alive
All the love you’ve been shown
Will never repay your love for usOh Maya!
You’re truly an angel
A black woman
A woman who spoke her mind
How blessed we’ve been
Like a bird
When summer came to an end
You flew, flew awayCopyright © knox mahlaba 2014
