Why do some films do this to me,
They fill me with emotion
And tears stream from my eyes.
Some I cannot watch again
As the tears flood from the start
As know what is coming.
But there are some I keep watching
As they seem so special,
And one in particular means so much.
I did not watch it at first,
It came out so long ago,
But it was only a few years ago
That I watched it
And was moved by its glory.
So now ‘Cinema Paradiso” is with me,
It has found a little corner in my heart
Where I plan to keep it forever.
