The evening before they said goodbye
They met and sat huddled together
In a quaint little eatery
Near the San Francisco bay

There they lingered
Within their little hide-a-way
In their favorite booth
In the rear of Willy Dilly's Cafe

The red brick walls were old and faded
Yet so welcoming -- so comforting
The leather padded stalls -- encircling
Keeping treasured secrets within

A fireplace warming -- crackling
Seemingly singing -- so mystifying
Here the lovers sat teary eyed
Oblivious to all except themselves

With reverence -- with broken phrases
They made eternal vows
In devastation -- with hands clutched tight
They cursed their fate -- their approaching separation

Yet they looked forward to one more amazing night
A night filled with both endearment and passion
A night to be remembered amongst many
One of ecstasy -- one that even Eros might envy

Moments of explosive love making amidst sweet tenderness 
Moments of breathless and appreciative exaltation
Joyous wonder during the night -- 'til morn of the next day
Eight hours in Paradise -- after leaving Willy Dilly's Cafe

Thank you for this fond memory of similar moments in my life. Now, I want to take my wife out to our Willy Dillyh Cafe and capture a bit of that romantic spark once again. Your words were well crafted.

Brings back memories 'By the Bay.' Thee was one night that took in Chinese New Year, Pier 64, and the Midnight Movies with 'The Flaming Creatures' as the gay, gory entree. After that, she was mine until she threw my letter in Sydney Harbor.

I do hope this happened, because you deserve it.
