このは (Konoha) – Leaf


from Tabitabi album.

Twirling and twirling
This leaf is going home
We’ll meet again another time

Too much joy to imagine
Your warmth
Too many tears to wipe away
Were all I loved

Having met you
Was really great
Being alive is wonderful

There is no life without regret
Being able to regret is important

Too much kindness to embrace
Your thundering heart
Too much sorrow to comprehend
I’ll love it all

Days spent with you
Days made up
Being able to live through them is wonderful

Even if things just repeat
It’s not the same
Again and again and yet again
They are still beloved

Turning and turning
I dry up and decay, but
I’ll come back to you again

Someday
Like a blooming flower with you

Meguri megutte
Kono ha wa kaeru no
Tsugi no jidai de mata aimashou

Omoi gakenai hodo no yorokobi
Sono nukumori
Nugui kirenai hodo no namida mo
Aishita subete

Anata ni aete
Hontou ni yokatta
Ikiteru koto wa suteki desu ne

Koukai shinai jinsei wa nai kedo
Kuyashii tte koto ga daiji nanda ne

Kakae kirenai hodo no yasashisa
Sono takanari
Yari kirenai hodo no kanashimi mo
Aishite yuku no

Anata to hibi wo
Tsumuideku hibi wo
Ikireru koto wa suteki desu ne

Kuri kaeshite bakari na you demo
Onaji ja nai
Nandomo nandomo tada nandomo
Aisuru mono yo

Mawari mawatte
Karete wa kuchitemo
Anata he to mata kaeru no deshou

Itsuka
Anata to saku hana no you ni

めぐりめぐって
この葉は帰るの
次の時代でまた逢いましょう

思いがけないほどの喜び
その温もり
拭いきれないほどの涙も
愛したすべて

あなたに逢えて
本当によかった
生きてることは素敵ですね

後悔しない人生はないけど
悔しいってことが大事なんだね

抱えきれないほどの優しさ
その高鳴り
やりきれないほどの悲しみも
愛してゆくの

あなたと日々を
紡いでく日々を
生きれることは素敵ですね

繰り返してばかりなようでも
同じじゃない
何度も何度も ただ何度も
愛するものよ

まわりまわって
枯れては朽ちても
あなたへとまた帰るのでしょう

いつか
あなたと咲く花のように
