She has delivered what she was sent here to deliver.

A great light has gone out of the world of the living.

A rare flower gone extinct.

A gift to humanity on loan from God.

Thank you Maya.

My soul is in mourning!
Farewell Maya! You left your eternal deep and indelible memory!


Alone
"Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don't believe I'm wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.
