The Piano Player

by Anthony Perdue

Both of them sitting at the piano

The place is closing and he says to her:

You know, it's great how well we got along.

She replies, with a bit of nostalgia:

Yes, we did have our moments.

He plays her a tune on the piano

She playfully pushes her shoulder against his, asking:

Are you coming back?

He shakes his head, telling her:

I don't belong here anymore.

He closes the piano top and she sees her name written on it

You gave me a reason to play.

She remains seated as he goes away

Both of them realizing:

You never know what you do for someone

Until it's done
