Reminds me of Billy Joel "Just The Way You Are" so please take that as a compliment as he is my number one piano player composer period. You might enjoy this guy doing a cover http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

You keep that five year old by your side for the rest of your life and you'll do just fine.
I have one thought about the first phrase that you begin the piece with.
(btw, if you feel that i'm sticking my own sense of music into your business, just tell me to mind my own business)
The melody is a G C D F.
If on the second pass of that theme you were to not play the D (make it a rest) and allow the listener into thinking it is being played.
It would give the piece a bit more tension to release on that F melody note.
I like it alot. I'm hearing a young Dave Grusin in there.
If you're not familiar with his music, may I suggest you have a listen.
Please do carry on with making beautiful music.

If you want to pitch this then adding strings would be key as well as REALLY slowing it down. Where would it fit? What show? What series? What type of movie? ok?

The melody is great. Maybe you could benefit from a change at some point in the song by using the accompaniment of the left hand. Sometimes you could stop the left hand, but changing the rythm could also be a good way to relaunch the thing.
> But well, this is good as it is. This is just a thought. Well done!

I'll try slowing it down whenever I perform it. I usually play instrumentals while people are getting seated and whatnot during my gigs
And Desertrose - most definitely took a few takes to get this one right
