NOTE: Just a quick heads up! You may have to turn up the volume a bit on this one. It is a bit on the quiet side (Unless my speakers are simply terrible and/or broken).

Before someone inevitably asks, the answer is no; this is not Naruto. It isn't related to the song "Sadness and Sorrow" on Naruto, nor did I even watch the anime at the time I wrote this. That is a great song, but this is completely unrelated aside from the coincidental sharing of titles. :P

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the actual commentary. I wrote this piece long ago, and I've come a long way musically since then. However, I have received several requests to remake this song. I've added a VERY simple intro, a nicer piano soundfont, some strings, and I've tweaked the volume in a few spots. I think it sounds a lot better, but you can compare if you'd like.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments! I would love to know your opinion, how I might improve this, or even what you imagine as you listen to this music. I read and respond to every review, so don't shy away! XD

Thanks in advance, and enjoy. :)

PS. I really need a decent strings sample for free. I have been using the string soundfont that comes with the FL Studio demo, but I can't stand it anymore. Know of any good samples for free?

T_T Wonderful

My, I can't help but cry like a baby hearing this xD

You named it well, though, it reminds me of some strange-but-sad memories...
But I saw a strange scene closing my eyes... A little, purple butterfly, going to one flower to another, but strange flowers with tainted blue or light green, that probably don't exist... He leaves a nice, light red flower which has some blood scent, and goes to another one, more dark-purple colored, with like a lavanda scent... Landing on the flower, his wings progressively darker. He seems to try to go in the flower and one of his wings drop in the flower and, helpless, he looks at it turning into a purple dust, which loses itself in the flower. A slight wind blows and the flower can't help but move. The butterfly seems like carried away by the wind until it stops, leaving the defenseless animal fall into the abyssal deepness of a field... He hit a light green flower and his second wing drops, turning into dust, colored like the flower. The butterfly tries to get into the flower, like attracted by some chlorophyll sent surrounding the flower, until it bents, leaving the wingness butterfly fall between into the grass and hit the ground hard, but silently. A strong wind starts blowing, and the butterfly spends his last moments looking at the white cloud floating in the sky, until it covers purple and greend. As he dies, his wings turned into dust fall of him, covering, preparing him to get buried and leaving him the scent of death. Unrelentingly, he goes into the ground and starts to disappear, as the ground seems to change its color into light green and dark purple drawing two different paths, crossing each other then going away, until they combine into a deep sky-like blue. Then, looking at the drawing from higher, you can see beautiful heart-shaped wings made out of dust, which perfectly coincides with the end of the song.

Sorry for writing all this, you said you'd like to know what we imagine while listening to this. There you are :D

Thanks for this great music, keep up the good work...

That is some pretty intense imagery. I love the vivid description and strong adjectives. The beginning of it starts of beautifully, progressing into a struggle for life, only to end quietly with a beautiful image but lingering sadness from the death of the butterfly. Very befitting of the music.

Thank you for sharing your imaginings and brightening my day, friend. :)

Stunning, absolutely stunning. Very rarely does a song bring me to tears like this one. Excellent work.

It's crazy how a song can do that. Music is one of the few things that will make me cry. :')
