Soundtrack Contest

This is going to be a specified category contest.
Imagine this:
A 17 year old girl finds out she is going to die in 48 hours due to an extremely rare disease, and decides to spend her first 24 hours with her family, and her last 24 hours in a meadow with her boyfriend.
I know it sounds wierd, but I'm simply requesting that you try to compose a piece based on this information.
-Harp and piano (and whatever else you want)
-Sad background or grim, then some happy parts
-This is a soundtrack song, so keep that in mind
Thank you if you're going to enter. The deadline for this contest is officially April 18th, and will be judged through the following week.
By entering this contest you'll be helping me and my friend very much. So thanks. -Sam
