Kobukuro – Tsubomi

When your tears fall, they merely blend into your smile covered in sweat,
that nobody will be able to notice.
For this reason, I do not ever know about your tears.

A light that would never go out was lit in my heart;
that gentle light you gave me was the proof of our unconditional love.

You always talked quietly to my back shone by the pleasant sunlight,
surely, certainly, without a doubt,
you also knew that a day like today would eventually come.

This year, too, a short-lived about-to-bloom flower bud awaits me.
Unseizable with my palms, its petals dance in the wind,
and nimbly scatter onto my shoulders, as I, standing still alone,
recall the image of the past, where you once put on your brightest smile for me.

Even in the valleys between buildings, we can make our buried dreams sprout
and bloom into a flower. A held dream will never be picky about where to bloom.

We are shadows dropped into this town. As each of us searches for light,
one day, surely, certainly, without a doubt,
we will be able to overtake the overlapping flow of our time.

Above the windless train tracks, the beautiful May sky looked lonesomely blue,
while the motionless scattered clouds merely floated there endlessly.
“They cannot move anywhere else anymore, just like me.”
whispering so to the wind, I suddenly find my tears falling with glimmers.

When the blossoms scatter, they open up once again, just like you.
They cheered me on inaudibly, as I tightened my fists with reassurance.

This year, too, a short-lived about-to-bloom flower bud awaits me.
Even now I’m still unable to seize the dream you and I sketched together.
Standing still, I now search into the sky for a flower bud
that will bloom into a gentle smile right by my side.
