「悲文」
Kagrra,

便りが途絶えて三度目の風が訪れ
土筆も眠そうな眼を擦り光浴びています

小川が流れる畦道を独り歩けば
幼い掌の記憶そっと滲んできます

何もかもあの時のまま 時間を留めて

行く宛の無いこの手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

あの頃無くした簪が顔を覘かせ
腰まで伸ばした白髪をとけば泣けてきます

何もかもあの時のまま 時間を留めて
何もかもあの時のまま 季節は巡る

行く宛の無いこの手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

永遠に届かぬ手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

~♦~

‘Hifumi’ {‘Sorrowful Writings’}
by Kagrra,

The third wind since our correspondence broke off approaches,
as if scoured by horsetails sleepy eyes are flooded with light*

When I walk alone on the footpath between the rice fields where the stream flows,
the memories from the once youthful palm of my hand quietly seep out

Stop time with everything as it was back then

This letter with no address to go to carries the feelings I put down in words

The hairpin you lost in those days gives me a glimpse of your face,
when you let down the white hair that reached your waist
it brings tears to my eyes

Stop time with everything as it was back then
The seasons go round with everything as it was back then

This letter with no address to go to carries the feelings I put down in words

This letter that will not reach for all eternity carries the feelings I put down in words

* A horsetail is a type of plant used in Japan for polishing and scouring.
