My Lovely, Lovely Sir,
When I found you online, I also discovered a video of you playing a song on the piano. It has become my favorite due to the fact that it was the first time I ‘saw’ you again after so many years.
I watched your fingers glide across the keys. I studied your face. I ached to touch your hair where it lay against your neck. I couldn’t look away; I was mesmerized hardly believing it was really you. I felt like I held my breath until you played the last note. I watched it over and over and over. I thought I was going to wear out my speakers or a cruel box would pop up and tell me I’ve viewed the allotted amount of time and I would be cut off.
The world tipped for me that day. I was catapulted back to 1999. I couldn’t even put to words what I was feeling. I was too overwhelmed. I had proof that you were still out there in that great, big world. I just didn’t know what to do about it.
The song haunts me and seduces me. It fills my whole being and makes me tingle, because I know it’s you playing it. It brings tears to my eyes because of the emotions it elicits. I play it continuously. I am completely sweet on you, Sir.

The money that I spent to cut that demo tape and have the video shot was worth every penny. It led you to me. Even though we had not spoken in over fourteen years I still thought that it might help you find me, and lo and behold it did.
I am humbled and flattered that you like it. If only there was a quality song that featured your own home state.
In terms of not knowing what to do about it, well I think you did. Look at us now.

Oh wow, that is beautiful. Goosebumps. You play beautifully Sir. Darling, I can’t blame you for listening to it over and over.
It is beautiful indeed, Cupi. His playing only mirrors the man he is though.
I have had the privilege of watching him play in person. Now that is a shivering experience.
I bet it is. There’s something so magical about being able to create music.

What can I say but thanks!
Hands you a tissue and sits next to you in silence. I get it. 🙂 I do.
“looks in your eyes and smiles” Lol i love talking in these phrases 😉
