The feeling that came through me while making this, should be rather clear: Depression.

I wonder how often we overlook someone. It's been a year since a man named Saif, passed away. It's been about 6 months since my great grandma passed away. It's been 4 months since my uncle died. It's only been about a month since the latest, Wendy, died.

Will I still remember them in 20 years? Will people remember them in 50? How about 200, when I'm long gone?

There's so much heartbreak we go through when it first happens. There's so much agony, of them being gone. Thoughts of everything you wished you had done, thoughts of things you could have done.

I speak for myself, and myself alone when I say this: Those people mentioned above, and the people that will follow them, as long as I live, I shall keep their memories afloat.

To Saif, Eidith, Tom, and Wendy. There are many who haven't forgot you, and many who won't.



I really like the way this song progresses. Some of the keys were a little awkward and potentially off-key, but it's easy to forget that when you look at the song as a whole. The strings sounded so good in this song, and the soft percussion was a very nice touch.

Nice and short, but it doesn't need to be any longer. That statement was felt immediately, and didn't need to be reiterated through unnecessary length.

Thanks man :)

I appreciate the kind words, dearly so.

Well bust my buttons.

Don't be insulted by this, but I think this song would be perfect for one of those cheesy e-card animations. It has such a perfect mood and melody to it that it just... fits. It matches the theme exactly, and even though it's depressing at times it's got a tinge of hope and sweetness.

I guess comparing it to generic e-card / inspirational animation music doesn't give it any sort of justice, but that's what I thought of it. I really like this song :) I think it's your best piece expression-wise. It starts off simply, but builds up into something really full-sounding.

The light bongo / percussion when the strings first come in is also a nice effect :)

So... yep. I tip my hat to you. This brought some thoughts of people that are only here in my memories, so you could say this song's got a universal message. Good job, Mr. Caleb!

Haha, I can see that yah. Although I'd make sure to be paid lots for that, ahaha.

I super liked the bongos, one of the first times I've ever used em.

I'm glad this is a universal message, I want everyone to remember those they have lost, but for the reasons why we miss them; because they were, and are worth missing.

I'm glad you liked this, thanks for stopping by :D
