There’s music in the heart

They met every Friday evening in the Park’s Gazebo.

They have been playing music together for 55 years. Their music was keeping them together and alive.

They played their instruments like there was no tomorrow.

“I think I may have been out of tune today”, said the violinist.

“You were perfect. We all sounded perfect together”, said the cellist.

The Cellist entered his assisted living facility. He told the nurse purposefully walking towards him,

“We made beautiful music today, as always! The violinist was especially exquisite”.

She smiled indulgently. She didn’t have the heart to tell him that he forgot his hearing aid, again.
