手紙

Tegami
Letter


朝の光 色褪せた壁
青い空に一つ 煌く宝石

揺れるカーテン越しに
見える景色 まるでオーロラのようで

滑らせた筆の先
掠れた文字の続きが書けないまま

忍ばせた言葉の分
飾り立てていたの 弱い自分隠して

止まった筆を置いて
この部屋を出ていく もう振り返らない

書きかけの手紙 残して
Romaji:
asa no hikari iroaseta kabe
aoi sora ni hitotsu kirameku houseki

yureru CURTAIN boshi ni
mieru keshiki marude AURORA no you de

suberaseta fude no saki
kasureta moji no tsuzuki ga kakenai mama

shinobaseta kotoba no bun
kazari tateteita no yowai jibun kakushite

tomatta fude wo oide
kono heya wo deteiku mou furikaeranai

kakikake no tegami nokoshite


English:
The morning light lit the faded wall.
In the blue sky, a single gem sparkles.

Through the swaying curtain,
the visible scenery looks just like aurora.

I let slide the tip of the brush.
I can't write the continuation of those blurred letters.

The part of words I concealed,
was just decorations to hide my weak self.

I stopped, and left the brush.
I am going to leave this room, and never look back again.

Leaving the unfinished letter.
