David, the soul singer

This is part of an ongoing project called “People In Your Neighborhood

We met David towards the very end of our visitation, just as we were loading our table back in the car. He saw us nearby, and asked us if we wanted to hear a song. We said yes.

His voice was raspy and soulful, strung together by the emotions that were reflected in his eyes. He sang of a lost love and heartbreak; I couldn’t help but wonder if he had someone special in mind. Where was she now?

I asked him how long he had been singing. He replied, “since I could talk.”
