Review :This particular poem is one of my most favorite & finest of creations. It’s written to inspire, encourage and amplify people’s nostalgia.
I have faith! that once you’re done reading this aloud & repeatedly, ( not sermonizing!) a positive effect will bind you and we shall connect as a writer & a reader.Hopefully!, my message will get through and so will my expressions.
It’s aimed to revive the memories of a person.
Please don’t forget! – to read slow, read aloud,read repeatedly and acknowledge the punctuation well! .
it’s purposefully structured ,to bring the best with all above considerations.
Enjoy vocalizing the rhyme aloud ! 🙂
P.S. previous poem : ‘To do the right thing’ : tag- righteousness, good & evil

Theme :There is a moment in everyone’s life, which stands out to the rest of them.
It may be an experience of a singular being or a band of loyal- friends/peers/equals/contemporaries. One grows with age and realization turns more true. This poem aims to revisit that apex of nostalgia, in one’s recollection of old memories.

There are times in life,
They don’t skip nor fly.
They stick to your soul, hold on.
In your heart there’s a feeling,
When years turn decade; grows vivid.
& decades turn century; till forever.
They don’t turn to oblivion nor succumb to dust.
What was held in the moment?
What was seen in those seconds?
Some brighter, shine around brightest.
a million folds , strangely! yet hold.
with feelings unknown, bond loyalty & belief..
Who knows! what stars conspired & plot.
There are men of honor.
Brighter they burn & extinguish.
& others with time, they linger & ponder.
What made those moments, one in a million.
Yet wonder shall I, but decades thereafter.
Many moments conspired,
But it was the moment.
For me & my fellow.
Which one is yours,
