Composed in Irvine, CA, Sep 2017. A guitar on a piano instrument, one of my all time fav styles!
'We finally met after 15 years so that we can say goodbye to each other!
Our meeting was short but lot of things to say in those 60 minutes
We now look older and we barely recognize each other
I said we meet after all these years, so now we can get closure
You said you don’t need closure so that we can still be unfinished
I said we need closure so that we don’t have to think about us again
and that we will meet again next life
and let’s just keep it that way!
We need closure so that our story can be finished!
The closure that we need it for us,
So that our incomplete story can be finally concluded
Let’s get closure!'
“In the house of lovers, the music never stops, the walls are made of songs & the floor dances. — Rumi."
I recorded this song first with guitar on piano with Flamenco background, then mixed it with cello and pizzicato from a Digital Piano Yamaha Clavinova CLP. All my music pieces are original first draft and I recorded while I composed it, never rewrote! Music for the beautiful and healing souls. Love to all!

At age 18, she won a Grand Prize at Mission Viejo, USA with her piece, "Sweet Childhood". And that was also the 2 times she's ever entered the public competitions. Although she never made music as her main professional career but music composition has always been a part of her, it is her first language, composing piano is just likes the river of journey that runs endlessly. During her childhood and adulthood, she composed many piano pieces but mostly were lost or never got recorded. All her music compositions are original, they don't have the perfectly or final version since she recorded it while she composed it never rewrote it.
Her composition music is where she can express her soul and journey, where she can connect to other souls, and where she hopes, it will help soothing and healing those souls that are lost and hurt, and those souls that are needed helps to reconnect, to return. They are the most beautiful souls of all!
