I just heard on KFM radio to Google you and read a poem of yours. Now they
are playing - as I type - I saw an angel. You're beautiful, it's true!
Did you notice the anagram? I live in love and synchronicity and I am
permanently "Touched By An Angel". I have felt the extremes of love, the
pain, the bliss, the ecstacy - and this poem describes it beautifully. To
me the existential paradox of life is to be afraid of love, when all there
is, is love and fear!

This poem has become one of my favorite poems. It has so many meanings and
interpretations. This poem tells me that love has hardships and it has good
times, but it is what truly frees us from our surroundings. We have not
experienced life until we have felt a deep love for someone. Love brings us
happiness as we experience this wonderful sensation inside of us. Love can
also make us sad. It hurts when we embrace this pain. Love costs all we are
and will ever be. Love releases us from everything. Love is such a great
emotion we have been given. This poem is great.

To think on this poem is sheer Beauty, it may not literally reference an
Angel, but for me, the poem speaks of an Angel of Love. If we dare to let
it in, it will heal our inner man, help us to forgive, and as Maya says,
set us Free! Free to release the past, step into our future and become
better individuals. A Touch from the Love Angel Can Transform any Human
Being! It's Contagious and we all desire to have some.(LOVE!) Well Said,
Ms. Angelou

To think on this poem and what it means is sheer Beauty, there may not be a
mention of an actual angel, but know that Love itself is an Angel, its
pure, sweet, it is ecstasy, as Maya says, its pain and pleasure. The Angel
of Love heals hearts,forgives and builds up, and it definately sets you
Free! Much Love, Maya!

this poem is sweet but sort of weird . becuase it says,touched by an angel
but it says nothing about angels.

That peom to me is sad and if your family member died it would make you sad
to. How 'bout anyone from around.

this poem means a lot to me. it shows that anyone can be loved if they
believe in love. everybody is loved by someone wether it be a family member
or a friend. but, in order to be loved you have to love someone yourself.
