I am 14. You are my role model. You always inspire me. I am made fun of.
But your poems help me keep my head held high. thank you.

Wow, this is one of the best love poems I've ever read! It describes love
perfectly: It heals, it hurts, but in the end it sets us free.

She didn`t mention ANGELS, but that doesn`t mean she it has not meaning. It
is a wonderful poem

Dear Anthony
I read your comments on the Maya Angelou poetry website regarding the poem
‘Touched By An Angel’ and I want to say that it really is OK to be sad –
for a while, no one wants to be sad for a long time. Think about this
though: If you were not given the gift of sadness to experience, how would
you really understand and interpret the experience and feeling of happiness
when the angel of happiness touched your life and brought with it all the
love and joy or whatever it is that happiness means for you, to you? For
me, the happiness I search for is the freedom to love and be loved. It
involves great risk and great pain, but the rewards turn out again and
again to be beyond my wildest expectations.
May your spirit soar with the angels.

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
