Dr. Maya Angelou has died

Donny and I celebrated our second anniversary yesterday (more on that later).  During our wedding ceremony on May 27, 2012, a friend read this poem by Dr. Angelou.  It has always been one of my favorites.

The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance…
our long way home.
I was always yours to have;
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.
When the first stone looked up at the blazing sun
and the first tree struggled up from the forest floor
I had always loved you more.
You freed your braids…
gave your hair to the breeze.
It hummed like a hive of honey bees.
I reached in the mass for the sweet honey comb there….
Mmmm…God, how I loved your hair.
You saw me bludgeoned by circumstance.
Lost, injured, hurt by chance.
I screamed to the heavens…
loudly screamed…
Trying to change our nightmares into dreams…
The sun has come.
The mists have gone.
We see in the distance our long way home.
I was always yours to have
and you were always mine.
We’ve loved each other
in and out
in and out
in and out of time.

About Crista Leigh

I used to be "The Rock Goddess" on the local affiliate of a nationally syndicated morning show. I spent my nights hanging out with band members at local concert venues, DJing and MCing various booze-filled events, and wearing outfits that involved more studs and spikes than could be found in every combined circa-1999 Hot Topic. Now, I'm the "Social Media Goddess," helping your business solidify a digital marketing plan to keep up with competitors. Doesn't really have quite the same ring, does it? I’m a lover of many things, but I am passionate about a few. Radio is my first love, and with that, the art of broadcasting. I have a deep appreciation for all music (yes, even polka) and grew up on a steady diet of punk rock and gospel (thanks, Dad). Combining my love of radio and music– and to live it every day– has been a dream-come-true, and I consider myself lucky to continue to work in the industry that gives me so much joy. Blogging, for me, is almost like an extension of radio. It gives me an opportunity to share my thoughts while providing the world with information. Marketing and social media are my new passions in life. I suppose "new" isn't the best way to describe it (since I've been at it for more than a decade) but I have recently enhanced my skills with additional clients and a shiny new master's degree. I suppose that's why I'm here.

  2. I think everything said was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information is not
    solid, however suppose you added something that grabbed people’s
    attention? I mean Dr. Maya Angelou has died | The Girl Behind the
    Mic is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home
    page and see how they write post headlines to grab
    people interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about
    everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more
    interesting.
