An Unexpected Pianist!

  Twas the night before Halloween and all through the streets.
Not a soul could be seen no one I would want to meet.
As the Autumn wind blew my heart was beating fast.
And I began to wonder if this walk would be my last.
Just then, from a distance, I heard the most beautiful sound.
But as I looked and looked it just couldn't be found.
The sound I was hearing sounded like someone playing a tune.
And the song I was hearing was called "By the Light of the Moon''.
It got louder and louder and then to my surprise.
The melody was coming from the old manor filled with flies.
The manor was abandoned several years ago.
As for the whereabouts of its owner, nobody knows.
But if there's one thing I knew, the song was coming from inside.
So I walked in quietly, as much as I wanted to hide.
When I shut the door behind me the house was as dark as a cave.
So I lit a candle sitting on a table and did my best to be brave.
I kept using my ears to find the instrument as it played.
Then I climbed up the stairs and said: "This must be the way".
While climbing up the stairs flies were all over my face.
To prevent me from falling, I climbed a steady pace.
When I made it upstairs stood in front of me was a door.
I was scared to open it, but I then count to four.
After calming myself down, I turned the knob and then...
The mystery of the music had finally come to an end.
For the music, I heard, was a piano full of keys.
As for the player, he played with incredible ease.
Then the pianist turned around, looked at me, and said:
"How do you do? My name is Fred!".
"Hi, there!" I said as we shook each other's hand.
I then told him how much I thought his music was grand.
Fred then told me something that was rarely heard of.
"My boy," Fred said, "I am an angel sent from above".
"You're an angel?" I asked with such awe and amaze.
"Yes boy I am!" as Fred's body began to glaze.
"I thought," I asked, "Angels lived with God in heaven?"
"They do," Fred said, "But I decided to stay here from the age of seven.
"But why?" I asked still trying to understand.
"Because," Fred said, "I miss my best friend who was absolutely grand."
Fred then told me how he was sent by God several years ago.
To befriend the lonely owner of this manor who loved wearing a bow.
Both she and Fred had fun playing the piano full of keys.
And afterward, they would both relax with some tea and cookies.
But then, one sad morning, while eating some flapjacks.
The owner then passed away from a horrible heart attack.
"That is why," explained Fred, "I've decided to stay in my friend's house.
Because I'd figured I'd be doing her a favor by taking care of her place and getting rid of the mouse."
After hearing Fred's story I knew he had a good heart.
However, I also knew that he had to go back to heaven and play a new part.
"Fred," I said, "I think you should go back to God's home that's way up above.
For God will assign you to a new friend to love.
"But boy," Fred said, "This house is plagued with spies.
Plus, I have to get rid of those pesky house flies."
"But Fred," I said, "God is your master, not this house or your friend.
Besides, wouldn't God want you to all of his children to the very end?"
At that moment, Fred senses began to kick in.
I could tell because I started to see tears running down his chin.
"You are a wise boy!" Fred said as his tears continued to flow.
"I guess I have forgotten that all those years ago".
"So, you'll go back to heaven?" I asked with a smile.
"Yes, I will," Fred said, "And make my life worth while.
Before I go, however, there's something I want you to do.
Could you please make this manor look more brand new?''
"Sure I can!" I said to Fred, "And I'll find this place, new owners.
Now go back to heaven and stop being a loner".
"Goodbye then and thank-you!" said Fred as he vanished without a trace.
Then I ran home to make plans to spruce up this place.
After convincing my local pastor and my church group too.
We all cleaned up the old manor and painted it blue.
Before long, a realtor took notice and put the manor up for sale.
It was then bought by an old sailor who loved to look for whales.
After looking around, I knew then that my job was done.
And deep down I felt great that things worked out for Fred, the old manor, and for everyone.
