    It has been you always about you
    you have been the glue
    the only constant in this world
    you have been there thru thick and thin
    you never gave up
    but you made a vow and you have kept it
    when the rest of us failed or faded away
    you were there
    holding it together
    Destee chose the right one
    to become the Master Moderator
    the third person in the Xtreme Trinity
    yet more Xtreme than any of the three
    you kept the light shining
    even after the Light of the Lighthouse faded away
    and you stand as the shining gem
    Destee and Rich to have and to hold
    from this day forward
    lead this people
    to the poetic promised land
    let them glean
    from your xperience
    for you are a master teacher
    How I pray
    that my gift still flowed as yours continue to flourish
    but my time has passed
    yet yours is eternal
    flow on my brutha
    for you xsist for such a time as this
    all hail
    the King
    This is his house
    his throne
    his world
    hear ye him
    and know
    that he holds the keys
    to a liberating flow
    that sets hearts afire
    and minds at ease
    Flow on Rich while I watch
    with a pantheon of poets
    who have gone on before
    whose time has passed
    as we marvel in your craft
    and your faithfulness to a queen
    such as Destee..yes Destee
    precious Destee
    flow on and hold her hand and let her know
    that you shall never leave her side...

    The Bishop has Spoken

    As i become speechless
    yet my loyality & worthyness
    remains deeper and heavier
    my love stronger & wider
    beyond da living soul
    i behold the grace of thy place
    set forth before me
    it was thee whom called upon me
    it was thee whom guided me
    it was thee whom accepted me
    so i give thankz and Tribute to thee
    Da Bishop of love & xtreme
    under this poetic umbralla
    it was your torch u passed
    where one seem to have failed
    only to seceed is where u stand
    it was by fate and plan
    ya light will forever shine through me
    within da humble community see
    ya poetic gift will forever be written
    upon da walls from da quill of ya pen
    when u speak of Master the reflection
    upon da mirror is thee whom mastered
    i am that i am , yet you are the light
    Destee is thy Queeneth of wonders
    forth i am of her mold

    Brother i hold no key nor space
    just a visitor inside the domain
    yet vow to be all in this race
    that has been and place'd
    i'm just a journeyman
    inside da wonderful landz
    the true tribute i give to thee
    Da Bishop !

    Am i my brother's keeper
    YES I AM............Thank u

    My Dear Beloved Brother Bishop ... this is so beautiful ... and so true ... OUR DEAR DARLING $$RICH$$NESSSSSSSS ... i have ALWAYS said ... that there is none like him ... none ... you remember Bishop, how Member of the Year came to be ??? ... :) ... and how we never had another one, after $$RICH$$ ... because no one compared. I don't know what i'd do without $$RICH$$ ... he has been a constant, that is for sure. Always the same, always giving the same love to every single person that posts poetry here, always the same ... since day one. That is not an easy feat to accomplish, but $$RICH$$ has done that. I consider him a blessing from God. I've even said, that he is the kind of Member that every community site owner wants, but there's only one him, and he's ours !!!! :love:

    Yes Yes Yes ... Thank you for this Bishop ... Beautiful

    :heart:

    Destee
