Sakura Drops

Memasuki bulan Maret adalah awal musim semi di Jepang. Saat itulah bunga Sakura mulai menampakkan kuncup-kuncupnya. Tak lama kemudian, seluruh kelopak bunganya akan memenuhi udara dan segala penjuru pandangan.

Betapa inginnya aku menyaksikan Sakura dari dekat. Dan, melakukan tradisi hanami (hana=bunga ; mi dari kata miru=melihat) seperti jamaknya orang-orang Jepang lakukan pada musim itu.

Untunglah ada internet, ya. Meskipun pastinya tidak sepuas jika menyaksikannya secara langsung, namun aku masih bisa melihat keindahan gambar dari bunga yang legendaris tersebut. Plus, mendengarkan lagu dari Utada Hikaru, “Sakura Drops” (lagu asli berbahasa Jepang).

Fall in love, then it ends
I swear: This will be my last heartbreak
Even the cherry blossom trees shaking in the wind,
will bloom one day soon.

The sudden summer rain,
passed by my tears in a quiet stream
A scene so like one from my memories
A summer re-run of a fall drama.

Why do I keep getting done in by the same punch,
and yet still continue to fight?
That’s one of life’s little mysteries.

Fall in love, give it my everything
I hope: This will be my last heartbreak
Even the cherry blossom trees shaking through the seasons,
will bloom one day soon.

Through the cycling seasons,
my shoes will wear thin.

take it easy,
put the past away someplace else.
I don’t think it’s so far from here,
this place I’ve never seen.

get over the endless pain in my heart
I want to be closer to you.
Once around is the beginning again.
always feeling about blindly for the blue sky

Fall in love, then it ends
I swear: Today will be my first good day.
Even the cherry blossom trees shaking in the wind,
are slowly reaching out a hand to you.

I love you so much, so very much I can’t do anything about it.
But this has nothing to do with that.
