Maya Angelou: Thank You, God

I want to thank You, God,
For life and all that’s in it.
Thank You for the day
And for the hour and for the minute.
I know many are gone;
I’m still living on.
I want to thank You.

Maya Angelou (1928–2014), hailed as a poet, educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer and director, traveled the world to international acclaim as a voice of wisdom.
