Please Forgive - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

What say me, let's say you,
A hearty welcome to all the world
Who adore the mind
That brought imaginations soaring
Through the skies in time to history or sci fi,

Bringing the inner child in age
To reinvent memories of events
Upon the silver screen, and so are dreams
Made to be spoken in these times
In need of escapism from their lives

To the company of strangers
There indeed to share a collective
Experience back to a career lasting 40 years
To a present age of many generations,
The cinema lives on in those who reexperience

His films over and over,
Like coming back to a cinematic friend
With memories that never age but transends,
Cinematic living legend in hopes to awe
Audiences throughout the globe once again....

Successful so he was to me,
Up there with my favorite cold war film
The Spy Who Came In From The Cold,
But Bridge of Spies is much warmer in hue
Than a contrasty film of cold and sacrifice...

In black and white no doubt to serve
The subject matter, Bridge of Spies
Presents a film of hope
Where the hue and texture of the images
Sought to create a world of the unknown

Story never uttered in the cine-magic glow
Of the silver screens throughout the globe
Filled with hope where both sides win,
Happy endings may not always happen
But to Steven Spielberg they should

And not a divide by a wall
Can stop the humanity reflected
Within the eyes of all who see,
A world of time forgot but live
To audiences as if in terms...

Of documentary made to drama
