Heart of Gold

Hail to you, Sir Cafe, most gallant knight
Defending the castle Poetry Corner
Protecting all the maidens day and night
While all the other knights you inspire

With your poems you wove a magic spell
Oftentimes taking us on a journey
Captivating with wondrous tales you tell
Fascinating us with their imagery

Your replies to comments on your poetry
Were always warm, cheerful and refreshing
They showed your pleasant personality
For all of us they were most endearing

We thank you noble knight with heart of gold
And may heaven bless your beautiful soul

Socrates - What a beautiful tribute to Cafe. I have been missing his humor, wit and poems for months on here now but most of all have missed his friendship. So happy for him for I know where he is and know is well taken care of. Take care.

Socrates,

Thank you for your beautiful tribute. The title alone says it all, but everything you wrote is so fitting.

It's hard to say what my favorite part is because, well... you'll see lol

I most especially love:

"Your replies to comments on your poetry
Were always warm, cheerful and refreshing
They showed your pleasant personality
For all of us they were most endearing

We thank you noble knight with heart of gold
And may heaven bless your beautiful soul"


As you can see, nearly half of your tribute is my favorite part, and I love All of it. The favorite comes remembering his comments - to me they are also part of his legacy, so I love that you brought out the "endearing personality" that is so evident in his interactions. And how could I not love the descriptions of noble and heart of gold? I along with you, and I expect many others would love to join in and say "May heaven bless your beautiful soul".

A beautiful soul, yes that's Jim.
Thank you, Socrates, for this write from your own heart of gold.

Mcradloff,

I just read one of my all-time favorite poems by Cafe, and you have a very funny comment on it, to which Cafe responded with a very funny comment as well. (In fact, I meant to point out your comment on there, so will do so now. I think the poem is called Bad Day.)
SCatlyn
*Actually, it's called Hard Times laugh (I think he does have one called Bad Day that is completely different altogether.)
SCatlyn
P.S. My apologies, Socrates, for adding so many comments - I just needed to add this:

I know some more have written tributes which I've just read, and they are treasures. I've gotta go now, but when I'm back, I'll be there straightaway. xoSCatlyn

Thank you so much for your beautiful tribute to Cafe.

He did indeed have a heart and a soul made from pure gold.

I think I will be missing him for a long, long time to come!

He passing has left a tremendous void on this site.

He ~ as well as yourself ~ was always such a true gentleman!

Hi Socrates! wave A very fitting tribute to Cafe; you depicted him in a manner so true of his nature. If there is one thing I remember of him that brings a smile each time I remember Cafe... it's his unique sense of humour...wine thumbs up

Dear friend I am so pleased to read this and leave a comment ...
when I came to know about his death, I was calm but slowly felt the full blow of the news like a slow poison and did mourn over his passing .
I could not bring myself to give any comment on all his tributes . He is like a Uncle I never had in my place but at this santuaury. Beside him I also missed Particolor a lot and these two were the sparks of CS .
Tears still rolls down my eyes as I am writing this ..the sadness is there as it shows what a great man he was and will be in my treasured chest of memories ... I know he is in Jesus's bosom waving at us to meet him soon with his crackling smile .I cried for losing a friend , mentor, uncle,motivatior and poet . Thank you for this tribute to Cafe
