Rudy Sings the Blues

It was getting late,

and work was done for the day

 everybody was heading home,

but not Rudy.

Tonight was jazz night at the local club,

and a special guest was going to be attending.

See Rudy loved jazz,

and wanted to be a trumpet player,

and play alongside a band,

but raising a family and working full time

was difficult enough,

and that once sought-after dream

was looking like a fantasy.

though Rudy didn’t know it,

her night was going to change her life forever.

The musicians on display was incredible,

Act after act

until it was time for the special guest to come on stage,

and on appeared the great Miles Davis,

Rudy was blown away,

and then Miles steps up to the mike

‘Is there anybody who can play the trumpet?’

One of the guys had fallen ill earlier,

and the band was looking for a backup

Rudy’s heart was beating hard,

and she looked around,

and everybody was shaking their head

until one person had their  hand raised.

Rudy looked up

and found it was her hand

and she was standing up,

Miles looked at her and beckoned her towards the stage,

My God-

Rudy wondered,

Is this happening for real?

and the great Miles Davis as if reading her mind

said ‘It sure is’

Rudy’s dream became a reality.
