Through the Sky
by Ayumi Okada

For Solo Piano, Late Intermediate, 4 Pages

Depicted in the piece is the imaginary dialogue in between the child on earth and their parent in the other side against the beauty of the changing sky.

I. A man is looking at the rainy sky through his window. He is struggling to accept the loss of his beloved mother. He keeps asking the questions toward her inside his mind, “where are you now?” “how should I live without you?” “do you still love me?” He knows that these questions will never be answered and reluctantly steps away from the window.

II. Angel’s Ladder appears through the cloud as if it is calling, “Look up, look up!"

III. The son feels as if his mother’s spirit is around. He looks up and talks to her toward the sky. He pretends to be okay at first, but confesses that he misses her so much at last. She answers. She assures that she raised him strong enough and that she will always be watching over him. As she bids farewell, he finally lets her go into the twilight.
