Tonja's Welcomoe Carol -- My first own composition

Hi there,

What do you think about this composition?
https://musescore.com/user/27859428/scores/5432755

I tried to create my very first own composition from my autodidactic music theory and learning-by-doing knowledge. It is dedicated to my daughter Antonia, born just 10 days ago. ^^ 

It's a quite simple pop song with the 4 chord fool proof recipe. ;-) The total effort comes to 2 days or maybe 8 to 10 hours. It contains an intro, catchy chorus and two short verses. It ends with a little chorus variation. The 2nd verse has some jazzy chords. The motif is inspired by my daughters sweet hiccup. 

Hope you like it, 

Cheers, Ortwin

a request

I really really like this song and I think It will sound really pretty on the piano; but i have looked LITERALLY everywhere for the sheet music and haven't been able to find it.  Unfortunately, my piano composition skills are very limited... lol So if any one wants to take on a challenge and write the sheet music just for fun that would be AMAZING! The song is called "I'll follow you" by Christon Gray. Thank you so much!!! 

music sheet

 Hi, i'll contact you beacause i heard a beautiful song but i can not find the score,now if possible, some of you would be able to derive a piano music sheet of this amazing song called ''Coming Home'' by Nicolas Haelg, Sam Halabi, Adon. I would be very very grateful if make it possible. Thank you and have a good day!  

Waltz progress, want feedback

So I have uploaded my Waltz in D here. It is quite unfinished. I don't even have the B section started yet. But I am thinking of using the F# at the end of the A section to modulate to another key for the B section. Here are the options I see:

B minor
F# minor
G major
A major

I can't seem to decide which of these 4 keys to go to which is why I'm asking for feedback on it.

But I wouldn't mind feedback on the harmony and melody as well.

Impromptu in C minor, how to actually finish it?

So I feel very creative in the key of C minor. For something like an impromptu or a symphony, that is great. But at the same time C minor feels intimidating. C minor, out of all the keys is where my music tends to go all Beethoven. In other words, I tend to have sudden dynamic changes, sudden tempo changes, every aspect of Beethoven's style in my C minor pieces. And this makes me nervous that if I finish a piece in C minor, there is going to be someone comparing me to Beethoven in a not so great way. At the same time though, I also get the feeling that I just don't know when to stop.

No matter how many cadences I have or how many measures I have written, I seriously don't know where to stop in a C minor piece. There are so many things I can do in C minor that I typically don't do in any other key. For example having bVII going to I, in the case of C minor that would be Bb going to Cm. I also feel like the Bb note is critical for the minor feeling of C minor. Without it, it feels too much like C major for me to think of it as really being C minor and I instead think of it as a transition to C major.

So how can I overcome this nervousness related to Beethoven's style showing up in my C minor pieces and how can I actually finish a piece when it feels like so much more could be done in the key of C minor?
