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,
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.
