So I went to the piano and began playing a variety of music and taking requests. Within moments, a lovely elderly woman slowly emerged from the audience and approached the piano holding a large framed photo. She announced that today, would have been her 65 th wedding anniversary.
She proceeded to tell the audience that last year she had lost her husband Robert and that she misses him terribly. She told the audience that this year would be no different. So with that comment, she put the microphone in the stand, looked at me and nodded her head. That was my cue. So I began to play the song as she began to dance and sway, clenching the photo of her cherished husband close to her chest.
The lines on her face seemed to diminish, she was no longer feeble; she was light on her feet and seemed to float across the dance floor. She looked so beautiful and elegant The Waltz You Saved For Me the spotlight followed her. At that moment, she was in a different world.
I was taken aback at the beauty of that moment. Before I knew it I had played the song through. I was now almost to the end of the song again; shall I play it once more? As I winded down the second time, I could sense she was almost finished, so I began to gradually slow the music. She followed the ritardando like a pro and ended gracefully like a woman half her age. Wow, that was so incredible! The audience was moved and leapt to their feet giving her a standing ovation.
I could see many ladies wiping their eyes; her performance had touched their hearts as well as mine. Peach Picking Time Down in Georgia. Alabama Jubilee [Instrumental]. Farewell Blues [Instrumental].
