Edit: Added divisi mics for a more full sound and also recorded some piano work for the song. Inspired by the artwork of Alvin Hew -- "Wandering Healer"

My latest piece. It's a wonder I was able to produce something new considering how much I have been teaching at the Elementary School (somebody has to care for the kids around here, so might as well be me).

This may be considered a romantic piece by some, but I had different thoughts while composing this. One person in particular -- a young student at my school -- has a rather introverted personality, and I tried to emulate her demeanor in song.

I also thought of a girl that I have feelings for (I met her at Walgreens lol), so there are in fact a few romantic elements in the song. I need me a good wife, I say. Basically, there are two themes combined within the track I suppose.

Let me know what you think about this. Feel free to tell me what you see while listening to the track.

Also, I am sick, so that is part of the reason why I had time to make something.

Thank you!

My heart. It is like my heart is held gently, being slowly put back together. "Wandering healer" indeed.

This music is only what I can call beautiful, somber, and depressing. I really can't see anything wrong with it, the music able to ser down a chilling atmosphere as well as an even better vibe, if sad is a good vibe in this situation. I rate 80/8 M8. N0 b8.
Good luck with your future projects!

This had me in tears, when I closed my eyes I saw the shadows of faceless pears, all I could see was a wall of a child's peers smiling. It looked so sad, I saw a small girl being left behind by the faceless figures. They weren't just smiling, they were laughing. It looked like ostracization, and seeing that girl trying to look beyond the wall of faceless figures knowing that a bright light lies beyond it, but never being able to cross it made me sad. Being left in the darkness, not knowing a gentle hand, a warm smile, or a kind heart in a different world... my tears started to swell and I started to cry.

When I closed my eyes and saw that, I felt as though that girl were my own daughter, I wished to rush to her and hold her telling her "Everything is gonna be alright". As much as I wished it, I knew that I couldn't comfort her... I was so sad just thinking about her being all alone. Nothing is more painful than being alone, it is similar to that of a Shakespeare quote "It is better have lost love, than to have never loved at all."

To capture that moment in time I drew a dark cave with three shadowy figures with only a open smile that resembles a sideways "D". These figures stood at the entrance of the caves where a bright light shined past them, but they were blocking the way. Not only were they blocking the way, there was a pond holding their reflections. This was a pond of memories that held that moment in time, capturing the image of the three figures in time, a constant reminder that hurts.

Even though I cannot hold that girl I saw, I can at least draw a happy ending for the small girl. I will give her a happy ending where there are no shadows to harm her.

I hope that you will visit my page to see that happy ending, and rest assured, you will be one of the first people to know.

Got curious with the title first, I gotta say the music is beautiful. It's a bit melancholic for me so that explains the inspiration from a young student of yours but still a beautiful piece.

Bosa responds:

Thank-you! I am happy to see that my work is being appreciated in these latter days.
