ashita no sora wa tooku dare ni mo mienai mirai
futari nara itsu datte te ga todoku you na
chiisa na omoidetachi ryoute ippai kakaete
anata dake omotteru sonna toki ga ureshii
donna ni hanaretemo aisuru kimochi wa itsudemo
anata no tonari ni sotto yorisotteiru
sou kesshite owaru koto no nai hontou no ai mitsuketa kara
nando futari meguriattemo nandomo koi wo suru deshou
kawaranai itsumo no fuukei sotto te no hira wo kasaneta
zutto zutto soba ni imasu chikatta aoi sora
komorebi no naka futari narande aruita kouen
atatakai soyokaze wa anata no nioi ga suru
umaku ienai kedo anata no egao miru dake de
tada sore dake de konna ni yasuragu kimochi
sou kesshite owaru koto no nai eien no ai ga takaramono
hontou ni anata de yokatta aeta koto hontou ni yokatta
itsuka tsutaetai omoi wa kono te no hira de atatameteta
anata ga watashi no takaramono yasashiku kaoru kaze
The sky of tomorrow unfolds boundlessly, beyond the future none has laid eyes on
When you are by my side, I feel as though we can readily reach out to it any given time
Holding a brimful of small memories upon both palms of my hands..
.. and having only you in my thoughts, it’s such times that I feel happiness
No matter how separated we are, our feelings of love will always..
.. accompany you closely, gently nestling by your side
Yes, indeed I found true love, the kind that knows no end
So however many times were we to encounter again, we would be sure to fall once more in love
Upon the palms of my hands, a certain changeless scene keeps gently repeating
The one in which, under the blue sky you vowed “forever and always, I will be by your side”
In the park where we walked side by side & under sunlight filtering through foliage..
.. the warmish balmy breeze still bears your scent
I find myself unable to express it well but, by watching you smile..
.. and by just that alone, I felt myself imbued with serene emotions
Yes, indeed eternal love, the kind that knows no end, is treasure
I’m truly glad it was you, I’m truly glad that we met
“You are my treasured one”.. these words that I wish to express to you, which I have kept warmish..
.. in the palms of these hands, will someday ride to you on this gently aromatic breeze
