I had a wonderful time watching a busker today.
“Oh I know this song!” I said to my friend and we stopped and I stood there with her with a cup of frozen yogurt in my hand.
And he was singing ‘sleeping child’ by Westlife.
He was really really good! Just one guy and a guitar. And I knew all the songs that he sang.
My friend left for her train and I was left standing there with an old man, who turned to me and said,”He’s very good ah!”
I could only nod and agree.
The old man left by the second song
And even though he couldn’t see me (he was blind) I really just wanted him to know that someone was watching him, enjoying his songs.
So when he finished I clapped as loud as I could. But I felt awkward after that because I was the only one clapping. (with my yogurt cup tucked safely under my armpit)
I wonder what he sees when he sings. Does he see a crowd of people watching him? Or is he alone in his world? I wonder what he thinks about when he sings those songs.
He said ‘thank you’, and I hope it made his day.
Today’s song list:
1) Sleeping Child by Westlife
2) Love Me by Collin Raye
P.S. I wish I could have stayed longer and clapped for more of his songs, but it was getting really late.
