See you next year 

また来年ね

Memory of the future
風がほっぺに柔らかく感じたら
それは春のしるし
犬になったつもりで
宙に漂う甘い春の匂いを嗅いでみる桜には思い出がいっぱい
入学式のドキドキや心細さも
日陰で薄暗い下駄箱も
お母さんの手書きで名前が入った体操服のぜっけんも
くしゃくしゃのあの子の笑顔も
記憶からこぼれ落ちてしまいそうな思い出さえ
桜といっしょに甦る風に流れて散る花びらは
光を浴びながらキラキラして
目を瞑ってもその煌めきが瞼に残る

Memory of the future

風がほっぺに柔らかく感じたら

それは春のしるし

犬になったつもりで

宙に漂う甘い春の匂いを嗅いでみる

桜には思い出がいっぱい

入学式のドキドキや心細さも

日陰で薄暗い下駄箱も

お母さんの手書きで名前が入った体操服のぜっけんも

くしゃくしゃのあの子の笑顔も

記憶からこぼれ落ちてしまいそうな思い出さえ

桜といっしょに甦る

風に流れて散る花びらは

光を浴びながらキラキラして

目を瞑ってもその煌めきが瞼に残る

Look up and smile every day 
昨日は泣いてへしょげても
朝起きたらね
毎日とりあえず自分をゼロに戻すんだ
生まれたての新芽みたいに
どんなに空が遠くても
自分の位置がでこぼこ地面に限りなく近くたって
そんなことは気にしない
気が遠くなるように感じる日があっても
大事なのは見つめている方向なんじゃないかってさ
まっすぐぴんって空を見上げて
ぱって葉っぱを広げるよ
深呼吸して笑ったら
今日もゼロから始める覚悟は完了さ

午後の光が降り注ぐ場所で
眠たそうなきみの目と
柔らかな体温
あまりに無防備なきみのそばにいたら
強く優しくなりたいと切に思った

眠たそうなきみの目と

柔らかな体温

あまりに無防備なきみのそばにいたら

強く優しくなりたいと切に思った

16時44分
月が青空に凍りついてる
指さきでそっと触れられたらと
かじかんだ手を冬空に伸ばす

16時44分

月が青空に凍りついてる

指さきでそっと触れられたらと

かじかんだ手を冬空に伸ばす

I miss here…

I miss here…

ひゅるりら
2011年夏の終わり
風の匂い
もう思い出せない

風の匂い

もう思い出せない

Dad, it has been five years since you passed away. I still feel that it was too soon. I wanted to prove myself to you. I wanted you to feel proud of who I am. Even though I’m getting older, you are the one who lets me feel like I’m still a little girl. Are you there? Are you still looking at me?I still cry sometimes, but I can hear you saying “Don’t cry…”Thank you for giving me a lot of love. Because of you, I believe in love. I still feel like I couldn’t return the love I received from you, and that feeling makes me really sad. But instead, I will keep giving my love to people who showed up in my life as much as possible. The morning you went far away was a beautiful winter day. The orange light during sunrise filled the room. Do you remember? At that time, sister kept saying to you “Please come to my dream sometimes, ok?” So please visit her in her dreams once in awhile. Otherwise, she calls your cell phone which you can’t answer anymore. Sometimes, life is not easy, but I won’t give up because my life is not only mine. Your thoughts are living within me. I will live my life, and I will live for you.The winter light was like you dad. I was cold and shivering, so I ran to the light and it warmed me up. I closed my eyes and thought of you there for a while.I love you, Dad.
