RomajiTranslation
hito no yo mitsumete ikutose
chiri kau hakanaki hana
nagareru toki ni mi wo makase
tomo no tazune matsu

“asobeyo osanaki warahabe
ookiku sodate sodate
sakura no ojii wa omaera
zuutto mimamorou”

kono karata ni kizamareta
kizu ga kataru ikusa no kioku
mirai ninau kodomora wo
sono miki ni daite

kaze ga shiraseru, tomo no shi wo
yagate watashi mo yuku darou
ima wa semete, mina no tame
saigo no hitohana sakaseyou…!

hito no yo mitsumete ikutose
chirikau hakanaki hana
oitaru sakura kare, oujou
shizukana nemuri ni
Watching the human world for years
The ephemeral flower scatters in the wind
Letting myself be carried along by the flow of time
Iwait for the visit from my comrade

“Go and play, young children
Grow up big and strong
Grandpa Sakura will always
be watching over you”

The scars carve onto this body (tree trunk)
recounts their memories of war
I embrace the children on whom the future depends
within this tree trunk of mine

The wind carries the message of my comrade’s death
It should be my turn to go soon
So for now at least, for the sake of everyone
Let me give my final blossom

Watching the human world for years
The ephemeral flower scatters in the wind
The old Sakura tree withered and passes on
into a serene sleep


玄冬 = depth of winter, is is also used to referred to old age
