    In the midst of chaos
    You emerged
    Calling all into a land
    Of peace
    And the freedom to scribe
    A place
    Where the flow
    Is abounding
    And those that bask
    Therein
    Are truly blessed
    Called unto me and others
    To help you to complete
    This world
    A place
    Where we can play
    And be ourselves
    Complete with innovative interactivity
    That sets this place apart from all others
    Giving us a voice
    Heeding our suggestions and ideas
    Implementing many of them
    You have blessed us mightily
    Assigning many of us different tasks
    In this pantheon
    Or poetic deities
    Allowing one such as I
    To know your mind
    And peer into your soul
    I must thank you for all that you have been
    To Love’s Favorite Son
    In this place
    Of unequaled poetic grace
    You are truly a queen
    Worth honoring
    Here’s to you my queen
    As the Knight of Nights bows
    To you
    The Beacon of the Lighthouse shall
    Forever shine in this place.

    my dear darling Bishop
    this poetry you've honored me with
    is more evidence that God's in the midst
    to speak of peace in the middle of storms
    goes against all that's considered the norm
    some would have us believe that it can't be done
    our people together without fighting and guns
    with a sincere and genuine love and respect
    in an effort to encourage, lift up and protect
    yeah ... they'd have us think it can't be done
    we're witnesses that this fight's all but won
    i have no doubt that each of us all thru the day
    continue to share love in this same special way
    just a smile or a nod or an encouraging word
    refusing to let love be deferred
    this forum
    me
    all that i am
    is due directly to God's unchanging hand
    thank you so much for being here for us
    giving yourself so we can progress
    inside our selves, our spirits and minds
    to know there's a place where love is defined
    while you've honored me with this poetry
    it's apparent to all that can see
    it's a team effort that's brought us this far
    thank you Bishop for being who you are

    :heart:

    Destee

    it's been a minute since I've written anything, thanks for the inspiration ... :)
