Piece written for the piano in mind in a kind of a rondo form

Need your feedback guys. This is my first piece written for the piano in mind from the beginning. The idea was the piece should be playable by myself, not a great piano player still. And initially it is started as a ballad in a rondo form.

How do you think what can be done better in the piece?

The title I've given to the piece came to my mind after the piece was done. So if the music brings a different feeling to you than the idea suggested in the title, please share yours.

A competition for newbies

I am a noob since I don't know how to simplify and it is taking long for me to make a piece/score so since their are no more competitions, I will host one
Here are the rules and all my scores (Don't mind the duplicate, I will just make another one and delete it)
Rules:
1. Instruments: Piano solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that are allowed this week: Impressionistic and/or Etude
4. Only one piece per person per style

16 bar compositional exercise

https://musescore.com/user/11164031/scores/5412063

Composition exercise by the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski(1882-1937) given to his student.

It goes as follows:
16 bars divided into 4x4 bar segments
Tonic chord at the beginning
At bars 7/8 modulate to dominant(in major) or relative major(in minor)
In bars 9/10 write a sequence
In bars 11/12 write another sequence
In bars 13/14 thematic return should occur
In bar 16 coda
And at the bottom: "best subdominant, dominant and tonic, perfect cadence."

I recommend giving it a try
