The piano

WALT write a descriptive piece of writing from the old man's point of view as he recalls memories. 
The piano
I am a lovely old man that likes to play piano all day every day.When I start playing the piano memories came back from in the past.I remember when my wife died of heart cancer.The first holiday was at Australia in Sydney.We even went to the zoo and saw lots of amazing animal.We walked on the Sydney harbor bridge.The last holiday was at Indonesia in Bali.We even went to the beautiful water park and had a elephant ride through the breeze forest.

I remember when we had your wedding.The vowels my wife said to me and the vowels I said to her will always be remembered.Then two days after your wedding we went on your honeymoon at England.One night we went out for dinner at Harvester Alwalton.We both had prawns and salad with aioli mayo. My wife will always be apart of my life because I am always going to remember you.

Now I’m remembering when I was in war with my little brother.We were both wearing green clothing like we did when we were little kids.We ran and hid behind the brown brick wall because the other team was firing bombs and shooting.Then something bad really happened,my little brother got shot in the chest and died.After just seeing my little brother die I was heartbroken.My heart was in pieces.My little brother fell into my sad arms.His last words were
“Thank you for everything,you were the best brother ever and love you.”
I couldn’t say my last words to him because he went.I started crying.I rubbed my sad warm hand on his head.

I’m now going to remember the happy times we have together.We would always play together,watch tv together and eat together.Now we can’t do that even more.My little brother will always be apart of my life because I am always going to remember you.

Now I’m remembering when I was a lovely child 60 years ago.I woke up early for my 6th birthday on the 13th of december.My dad hands me a blue box with a blue ribbon around it.
I said “Is this my present dad?”
Dad said “Yes son.”
I start ripping open my present,yay it’s a ride on horse.It was made out of wood and it is brown.It is my favourite toy but my only toy.I take it everywhere and play with it all day every day.Before I started galloping on my ride on horse I gave my dad a hug and kiss.Now I start galloping all around the house.

We went to my grandmas and grandads to celebrate my birthday lunch.I only just remembered my grandma past away a year ago.I start crying because I can’t celebrate it with grandma as well.I thought of her in my sad heart.I will always love her and will always remember her.While grandad still gave me my present even though grandma wasn’t there.

Latest prompt
As I said at the top of this page, the events around the world this week:

… as it came rushing towards us we…
The mudslide  
I went for an afternoon walk down the smooth, black concrete.I saw lots of old buildings that had cracked windows.When it all came rushing down to me,I screamed.It was brown like a rusty stick.The whole city was covered in brown ploppy mud.I was searching around for my family after what just happened.It took hours and weeks to find them but  no luck.I’m so sad I’ve just lost some family of mine.People were screaming for help to find their family’s and friends.Nobody could find anyone because they’re underneath brown ploppy mud.
