Ocean sounds

Hi I'm very new at this,I get melodies in my head but am struggling to write them down.  I want an ocean feel and am not really sure how to evoke it, as I want melodies to fit 3 poems I've written about the apostles, Peter, Andrew and John.  I can hear the feeling I want to create I just can't work out how to get it on paper as it were

Polonaise in Bb, Feedback Wanted

I have been composing a polonaise in Bb for the past few days. The A section of the polonaise is what I have written down. The A section of the A section is what my first few questions are about and is the exclusively diatonic section. The B section of the A section is more chromatic. I am asking these questions because they came up to me after listening to my own polonaise a few times.

1) Is the bass in the A section of the A section(bars 1-8 and 23-30) too dense?

2) In the consequent phrase(bars 5-8), is the bass too close to the melody? Should I bring it down an octave?

3) In the B section of the A section(bars 9-22), am I handling my chromaticism correctly or not?
 
4) Is it too much of me to expect a pianist to play a polonaise rhythm in octaves for the whole B section of the A section?

5) Do I smoothly transition into the inversion(left hand becomes right hand kind of inversion) or not?
 
6) Is my A section too repetitive with 2 periods and a motive sandwiched between the 2 periods and the repeat sign?

7) Is 30 bars enough for the A section of a piece that I expect to be 200 or so bars long, or should I extend my A section further? 

Here is the link to my polonaise score:

How else do you think it could be improved? Right now, I'm thinking of what to put in the B section of my polonaise.

My mistake

in Piano

Hey everyone!
I recently fell in love with the song "my mistake" of Witt Lowry. It's a rap, but I really like how the piano in the background works together with the words that the rapper sings. I would love to play it on the piano myself, but I can't find the notes on the internet. The problem is that I'm not very good in composing songs (not at all to be honest), I'm just an intermediate piano player. Does someone know a way to get the music sheet of this beautiful song? (I'm willing to pay if necessary) Thank you very very much!
