Under the lonely moonlight,
when my sole shadow forms
Shall I tell you then what’s in my heart
Will you please hear me out?
Alerting of the sudden dawn,
When that wind passes by,
Shall I ask as I let out a sigh,
the reason as to why I live?
Though I may be sad, I must live on.
Because I’m sad, I must live on.
Only after my passing will I understand,
The reason as to why I came to this world.
The one who will remember (me) after I leave
may say that you loved even my sorrow.
Like the scattered sunset,
When my painful memories fade
Will I be able to then laugh over them,
And regard them as fond memories of the past?
That sole star shinining above,
Perhaps it knows of my loneliness
Unable to bear leaving me alone,
It lingers there all night.
The one who will be saddened, far away in the future after I leave
Makes me believe that even in my sorrow, I was happy.
