Maybe This Time

Excitement building

The audience take their seats

The lights dim

The concert band take to the stage

 

Next to me an empty seat

A glance to the doorway – no one there

 

The concert band play

Music fills the hall

With parental pride the audience applaud

With a bow of thanks the band are gone

 

Next to me an empty seat

A glance to the doorway – still no one there

 

Time moves on – more groups perform

The talent and confidence shared.

Soloists and duets; quartets and strings

Achievement and success abound

 

Next to me an empty seat

A glance to the doorway – still no one there

 

Finally the orchestra take to the stage

More formal and precise than before

String, woodwind and brass ring true

A standing ovation well earned

 

Next to me an empty seat

A final glance to the doorway –

Was that a shadow moving away?
