Every time I hear this song I think of how young she was when she died. And how small her children were. Whenever Maya would sing in a sketch on SNL, you could see her mama in her.

Short sweet life, lots of talent, tons of heart and emotion. Truly a soul gone before her full potential and purpose were realized.
