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.

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.

Really nice poem... love to me is SO important! God is love, that's more
important than person-person love.
