In 1998 I discovered this piece (melody and lyrics) in an old notebook. It must have been written about my first love, who had graduated a few years before me. Fifteen years later I would look for him in Texas only to find him happily married with two kids.
This song is probably my very first song.* The verse is so innocent and idealistic. The melody is so simple. There is no dramatic form. It just repeats itself without reaching a climax.
Apparently I had used some kind of modal scale (mixolydian on D). So I tried to expound on it in the accompaniment.
* Note: 24 June 2000
This was not my first piece.
My first piece was A Carefree Melody - composed when I was 14.
