A Recall - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Memories are wonders of living,
often it make us reflect our being.
slumber brings forth mind recall,
to where dream captures us all.

Memories are emotional cushion,
every lesson learned gives caution.
making us better men with foresight,
onward to the future with much delight.
risking not many chances to lose again,
all opportunities wasted which gave pain.
bring back not sorrow but warm felicity...
life is precious so why embark on vanity,
exhort the best things from its eventuality.

Memories will show mental panorama,
on its reflections a portrayed melodrama.
make a challenge to take an adventure,
enhance the chances for a bright future.
nurture goodwill and courage to deliver...
the best in life from the past to uncover,
success for the future that can last forever.
