悲文

便りが途絶えて三度目の風が訪れ
土筆も眠そうな眼を擦り光浴びています

小川が流れる畦道を独り歩けば
幼い掌の記憶そっと滲んできます

何もかもあの時のまま 時間を留めて

行く宛の無いこの手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

あの頃無くした簪が顔を覘かせ
腰まで伸ばした白髪をとけば泣けてきます

何もかもあの時のまま 時間を留めて
何もかもあの時のまま 季節は巡る

行く宛の無い手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

永遠に届かぬ手紙 書き綴る思いを乗せて

Sad Words

As the tidings come to an end, the wind visits a third time
And horsetails bask in light that grazes my drowzy eyes

If I walk alone down the path where a brook flows
Memories of my childish hands will softly blur

All is as it was then, everything will stop time

This unaddressed letter carries my thoughts in written form

The hairpin I lost in those days peeks into my face
I cry when I undo my waist-long white hair

All is as it was then, time will be stopped
All is as it was then, the seasons change

This unaddressed letter carries my thoughts in written form

This undelivered letter carries my thoughts in written form

Notes:
The 文 of the title doesn't necessarily mean 'words' per se; it's about literature in general and can refer to the text as a whole, the writing style, the sentences, the words... Also, 悲文 doesn't seem to be a word in Japanese. But in Chinese it is, and apparently means "sad text."
