貧しい家に生まれてきたこと
嘆いたことなどありません
此れが宿命と諦めたわけでも
強がっているわけでもなくて

mazushii ie ni umarete kita koto
nageita koto nado arimasen
kore ga sadame to akirameta wake demo
tsuyogatte iru wake demo nakute

I never grieved over being born
to a poor family
but that doesn’t mean I gave up, saying it was fate,
or acted tough.

憐れみばかりをくれる人々
私は斯くも不倖でしょうか
美しく飾ることもできぬ儘
咲かず散りゆく花のようだと

awaremi bakari o kureru hitobito
watashi wa kakumo fukou deshou ka
utsukushiku kazuru koto mo dekinu mama
sakazuchiri yuku hana no you da to

People only ever pity me.
Am I really so unhappy?
They say I’m like a flower that will wither and die
without blooming, unable to look my best.

盛者必衰誰しき皆果つる先は一処

shoujahissui dareshimo mina katsuru saki wa hitotokoro

Even the prosperous will fade. Everyone heads to the same place in the end.

夜なべで働き今日を凌ぐ生き様が
如何に滑稽だと嗤われても
愛しい家族と共に在れること
どんなに倖せか知らないでしょう

yonabe de hataraki kyou o shinoguikizama ga
ika ni kokkei da to warawaretemo
itoshii mono to tomo ni areru koto
donna ni shiawase ka shiranai deshou

I work nights and survive today.
They laugh, saying my way of life is so funny, and yet
they don’t know how happy I am
to live together with the one I love.

汗みずくになり明日も見えぬ程に
其の日暮らしだと嘲られても
変わらぬ笑みで迎えられること
こんなに倖せと知らないでしょう

asemizuku ni nari ashita mo mienu hodo ni
sono higurashi da to azakeraretemo
kawaranu emi de mukaerareru koto
konna ni shiawase to shiranai deshou

I get so soaked in sweat I can’t even see what lies ahead.
They laugh at me as I take each day as it comes, and yet
they don’t know how happy I am
to be welcomed by a constant smile.

二人の出逢いを例えますなら
雪解けに待つ新芽の季節
重ね合わせた戀ひはさながら
今を盛りと匂ふ花弁

futari no deai o tatoemasu nara
yukidoke ni matsu shinme no kisetsu
kasaneawaseta omoi wa sanagara
ima o sakari to niou hanabira

If I compared our meeting to something,
it would be the season of new sprouts, awaiting the thawing of the snow.
Our overlapping memories
are just like fragrant petals in full bloom.

交わした言葉覚えていますか
あの日描いた夫婦の夢
小指に絡めたくれなるの糸で
見えた永久もありましたね

kawashita kotoba oboete imasu ka
ano hi egaita meoto no yume
koyubi ni karameta kurenai no ito de
mieta towa mo arimashita ne

Do you remember the words we exchanged?
It was our dream of being married, which we imagined back then.
We could see eternity ahead of us
through the red threads tying our little fingers together.

落花流水等しく皆辿る路に光あれ

rakkaryousui hitoshiku mina tadoru michi ni hikari are

May there be light on the paths followed by mutual lovers.

厄を払う贄に選ばれし誉を
哀しむ私は愚かでしょうか
御前様にもう触れられない
それゆえに心苦しいのです

yaku o harau nie ni erabareshi homare o
kanashimu watashi wa oroka deshou ka
omaesama ni mou furerarenai
sore yue ni kokorogurushii no desu

Was I the foolish one to despair
that you would bear the honour of becoming a sacrifice to ward off calamity?
I cannot touch you anymore
and so I suffer.

全て世の為人の為と云ふならば
この身など厭わずに捧げましょう
御前様と添い遂げられないこと
それだけが心残りなのです

subete yo no tame hito no tame to iu naraba
kono mi nado itowazu ni sasagemashou
omaesama to soi togerarenai koto
sore dake ga kokoro nokori na no desu

If they say it is all for the world’s sake and for the sake of others,
then I will offer myself up without hesitation.
We could not be married for life
and that is my one regret.

はらりはらり堕つる滴に渗む
優しい恋ひ出をくれた世界で
どうか溢れんばかりの倖せを
御前様のこと愛しています

harari harari otsuru shizuku ni nijimu
yasashiii omoide o kureta sekai de
douka afuren bakari no shiawase o
omaesama no koto aishite imasu

In this world that granted me tender memories
that blur into the drops that fall gently,
may you have bountiful happiness.
I love you from the bottom of my heart.

咲いては散り
散っては咲く桜のように
巡り巡る縁に誘われ
来世できっとまた
お逢いしましょう
御前様だけを愛しています

saite wa chiri
chitte wa saku sakura no you ni
meguri meguru enishi ni izanaware
nochi no yo de kitto mata
oaishimashou
omae sama dake o aishite imasu

Like cherry blossoms
that bloom and fall and fall and bloom again
I am taken by the cycle of fate.
Let’s meet again
in the next world.
You are the only one I love.
