Today's prompt is "wish."

I feel that I should be beating the drum for this and improvising on it rather than taking to the keys, but I don't think the time of day is going to permit me, and neither are the neighbours.

I feel today's prompt very strongly; it hits hard. I poured my feelings onto the keys, thinking about every dream and wish of mine done on a wing and a prayer, including some recent wishes of mine. I am fighting off tears.

This piece was intended to have lyrics and I wrote them as far back as 2009, but I haven't got the physical or emotional strength to handle lyrics today. So I improvised this much slower rendition. But one day, when the time is right, I'll do the original vocal version.

This is a lovely and wistful piece, beautifully played. To my mind, nothing else feels quite as apropos as piano when it comes to solo instrumentals. The second half is definitely reminiscent of "Radical Dreamers ~ The Jewel Which You Cannot Steal," which is probably my number one track on the Chrono Cross OST. The Yasunori Mitsuda vibes are so strong that it gave me chills.

Beautiful. Can't wait to hear the lyrical version as well.

Awesome the beat song i "listened" today
