    Its been a good flow
    these years have been a blast
    how I often thought the Lighthouse was eternal
    but everything has an xpiration date
    and mine have long since xpired
    I have fought a good fight
    finished my course and kept the faith
    the Lighthouse gives way to new domains to be erected
    new flows to be directed
    I go to meet my brother and others who have gone on
    I hear the poetic beats
    of my ancestors calling
    and I go to a prepared place
    for prepared poets
    not afraid of what's to come
    rather looking forward to it
    remembering
    Chi-V
    Alyce
    Amun-Ra
    Garlic Salt
    Blakverb
    Heartbeat
    and lest we forget
    Watcher
    going to take my place
    with poets of old
    so that this new generation
    can take this flow
    to new heights
    and new depths
    I hear the echoes on the MIC
    and the lyrical dissertations
    or yesterday
    calling me home
    Peace
    be unto
    you
    Peace be multiplied
    as The Sea of Love
    evaporates
    and the Lighthouse fades
    Love's Favorite Son
    is preparing to receive his reward.

    say it ain't so....

    In thy direction u shall remain
    through my quill i will stain
    keeping da faith & light a bright
    sea in flow of da wonderful glow

    I'll never let it dem
    keepin the cup fill to it's poetic brim
    as i often think of what was
    and what could be
    there are a few faces my vision see
    not xpired just passing down
    only to Rise ............I love u brother Bishop !

    Bishop, this saddens me, and I honestly don't quite know what to say... Sometimes life takes unusual twists and turns, and what may seem to be the end, actually isn't. One thing is for sure, your poetic talent still shines.

    This is truely so unfair. How can a amateur
    such as myself learn to master the flo
    if one of the flo masters is gone.:maddd:
    I wish you the best of luck in your future
    endeavors. Hopefully you wont forget about us
    and drop by from time to time to set the thread
    on fiyah. May your pen 4EVER beautifully flo.

    Much Luv to you
