Cinema Paradiso.

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.
