This poem shows the power of love. What love can be? I feel that we can run
all we want to from love but it will not just go away. When you heart feels
something it does not just disappear. Love heals and hurts but there is a
good out come to it. In the end it will set you free. If someone was not
given love or the experience of love how would someone truly know what they
are missing? Mrs. Angelou is saying that love can make us. Love cost all we
are and are we will ever be. She is saying love involves great risks and
possible pain. But in the end with true love there wonít always be that
down fall. Love had hardships but eventually it will set us free and show
our true inner beauty and the true person will surface. Maya talks about
and angel in her poem. Itís not truly and angel but symbolic for love. How
swiftly and unexpectedly it could happen. That you may not even know its
there until an occurrence of pain may reveal what the heart truly feels.
You never know what you have until itís gone. Love is something to be
cherished. Until someone has loved they donít know their true self Love
sets us free...

This poem is a great poem it reminds me of my great grandpa when he died! I
am only 11 and he died!!! (crying)This poem has a lot of inspiration in it
and it could bring you back some good memories of people that has past away
and this poem lets you know that the person you love that pasted was
touched by an angel and that angel picked him/her up and took them to a
better place than earth!!! (HEAVEN!) I miss grandpa!!!!!!!!11

I was asked to read this poem at my brother's wedding and I can understand
why after reading it. This poem is perfect for any occasion when love for
another is being celebrated.

Hi,
Does anyone know what book Maya Angelou's poem "Touched by an Angel" is
printed? I looked in The complete Collected Poetry of Maya Angelou and
it's not even in there. I cannot seem to find which book it is in. Please
let me know if you know.
Thanks!!

I just luv this poem and before the project my English teacher gave us i
really had no iterest well now i can't get enough so but this poem is
inspiring and it has such good meaning to it and she really catches the
readers attention by the vocab and the way she writes it.

Plus Maya Angelou has some great poems but i think that this one is the
best.
