「雪と桜のあいだ 」”Between Snow and Cherry Blossoms”

闇に 光さして 
たくさんのかけら ぶつかり 
たくさんの涙 流された

兄弟たちが 別れ そしてまた出会い 
その別れと出会い 何度も繰り返し
柱 作られた

子どもたちよ おゆきなさい
あの星めざし 学ぶために
ふるさとから 遠く離れても
わたしはいつも 見ているよ

変わっていくものと 変わらないものと
たくさんあるものと ひとつしかないものと
どれも 忘れられないもの

誰もが もがき 立ちすくんで
人を愛し 人とともに生きて

いとしい人よ お泣きなさい
その墓の前で 言葉などない
ふるさとから 呼び出しがきたの
わたしはこれで お別れよ

雪は降り 積もり やがてとけ
花は咲き 散って 種がこぼれ
人はみな 見ている
見えるものも 見えないものさえも

子どもたちよ その時がきて そこを旅立ち
ふるさとへと また戻るまで 学び続けなさい

長い旅路のはて 星の迷い子たちよ
ふるさとへと また戻るまで 旅を続けなさい

”Between Snow and Cherry Blossoms”

There was light in the darkness.
Zero gave birth to one.
A lot of fragments collided,
and a lot of tears were shed.

The brothers were separated and met again.
That parting and meeting was repeated many times over.
And a pillar was made.

Children, it’s the time to go to the planet to learn.
Even though you are far from homeland, I will always look at you.

There are things that change and that don't,
things that is sufficient and only one,
everything is unforgettable.

Everyone struggles, stands still and hurts someone,
but still loves, lives with
and closes the eyes.

Dearest of all, weep for me.
There is nothing to say in front of my grave.
I got a call from my homeland.
I have to say goodbye.

The snow falls, piles up, and eventually melts away.
The cherry blossoms bloom, fall, and the seeds spill.

Children, keep learning until the time comes
to leave the planet and return to your homeland.

Oh children, lost in the star,
at the end of your long journey,
continue your journey until you return to your homeland.
