故郷ふるさとに続く道

furusato ni tsuzuku michi

On the road that leads me home

あなたのことを想う

anata no koto o omou

I think of you.

繰り返す月日が

kurikaesu tsukihi ga

The passage of time

そこにいないこと慣れさせた

soko ni inai koto naresaseta

has accustomed me to being away.


母はここに来ると

haha wa koko ni kuru to

When your mother arrived …

寂しくも嬉しそうに

sabishiku mo ureshisō ni

you tell me your memories

思い出語るから

omoide kataru kara

looking lonely yet glad,

うなずき静かに目を閉じる

unazuki shizuka ni me o tojiru

so I nod and quietly close my eyes.


行く度に「また背が伸びたね」と

iku tabi ni "mata se ga nobita ne" to

Whenever I come over, he says "You've grown again, eh?"

照れくさい 何もしてないのに

terekusai nani mo shite nai no ni

Though it's embarrassing and I do nothing,

わがままで迷惑多くかけたけど

wagamama de meiwaku ōku kaketa kedo

my selfishness has caused you a lot of trouble

何も言わずに優しく包んだ

nani mo iwazu ni yasashiku tsutsunda

but without saying a word I lovingly wrapped you in my arms.


あなたがくれた 言葉たちは

anata ga kureta kotoba-tachi wa

The words you gave me

今も心の奥に刻まれていて

ima mo kokoro no oku ni kizamarete ite

are even now inscribed inside my heart …


あなたの大きな その存在は

anata no ōkina sono sonzai wa

Your huge presence

胸の中僕を支えるプライド

mune no naka boku o sasaeru puraido

is the pride in my chest that supports me.


僕は今 あなたのようになりたくて

boku wa ima anata no yō ni naritakute

Right now I live this day.

今日を生きています

kyō o ikite imasu

wanting to be like you.


手塩にかけた畑の

teshio ni kaketa hatake no

The vegetables you boast about

自慢の野菜たち

jiman no yasai-tachi

in the field you looked after,

僕は嫌いなニンジンを

boku wa kirai na ninjin o

I forced down through tears

泣きながら飲み込んでいた

nakinagara nomikonde ita

those disgusting carrots.


命吹き込んだ凧 

inochi fukikonda tako

You blew life into a kite

「外で揚げよう」誘う

"soto de ageyō" sasou

and invited me, "Let's play with it outside."

「ゲームの方が楽しい」と 

"gēmu no hō ga tanoshii" to

"I prefer playing video games," I said,

あなたを困らせてばかりで

anata o komarasete bakari de

always putting you to bother.


今になり やっとわかってきたよ

ima ni nari yatto wakatte kita yo

Now I finally get it.

「大切な人に向ける愛情」

"taisetsu na hito ni mukeru aijō"

"Your love for someone special"

「何事も全力でこだわること」

"nanigoto mo zenryoku de kodawaru koto"

"Giving your all, meticulous in everything"

「生きた証を残す大切さ」

"ikita akashi o nokosu taisetsu sa"

"How important it is to leave something of you behind"


あなたが守った あの畑は

anata ga mamotta ano hatake wa

The field you tended

今も僕の血と肉を生み出して

ima mo boku no chi to niku o umidashite

even now brings forth my flesh and blood …


あなたが作り上げた あの凧は

anata ga tsukuriageta ano tako wa

The kite you finished making

空に舞い続け皆楽しませる

sora ni maitsuzuke mina tanoshimaseru

keeps soaring in the sky bringing everyone joy.


僕は今あなたのように

boku wa ima anata no yō ni

Right now, I wanna live like you

何かを残したくて生きています

nanika o nokoshitakute ikite imasu

with something to leave behind.


貧しさに打ち勝ち 戦争を生き抜き

mazushisa ni uchikachi sens\ou o ikinuki

You overcame poverty, lived through war,

仕事をなぎ倒し 時代を駆け抜けた

shigoto o nagitaoshi jidai o kakenuketa

handled the work, and passed through the ages.

最後の戦いには勝てなかったけど

saigo no tatakai ni wa katenakatta kedo

You couldn't win your final battle,

あなたは あなたは とても 強かった

anata wa anata wa totemo tsuyokatta

but you, yes you were extremely strong.


テレビや絵本 小説よりも

terebi ya ehon shōsetsu yori mo

More than on television, picture books and novels,

ずっと身近でリアルなヒーローです

zutto mijika de riaru na hīrō desu

the one who was always nearby was the real-life hero.


あなたが旅立った あの夜は

anata ga tabidatta ano yoru wa

The night you departed,

寄り添う凧の華が綺麗でした

yorisou tako no hana ga kirei deshita

the flowers on the kite close together were beautiful.


汗拭きながら 僕は告げる

ase fukinagara boku wa tsugeru

Wiping my sweat, I tell you,

「僕の背ね 追い抜いたんだよ」

"boku no se ne oinuita n da yo"

"I'm taller than you now!"


僕は今 あなたのようになりたくて

boku wa ima anata no yō ni naritakute

Right now I sing,

歌っています

utatte imasu

I wanna be like you,


時が流れて 過ごした記憶は

toki ga nagarete sugoshita kioku wa

Time flows and my past memories fade,

色あせるけれど あなたを誇りに生きていたい

iroaseru keredo anata o hokori ni ikite itai

but I wanna live my life being proud of you.


さよならは言わない ありがとうも言わない

sayonara wa iwanai arigatō mo iwanai

I don't say goodbye, nor say thank you.

ただ僕の未来を 切り開くそれが恩返し

tada boku no mirai o kirihiraku sore ga ongaeshi

To make a future for myself, that's how I'll repay you.


僕もいつかは 最期が来るだろう

boku mo itsuka wa saigo ga kuru darō

Surely someday my final time will come too.

願わくば その時

negawakuba sono toki

My wish is that then

誰かが 泣いてくれるように

dareka ga naite kureru yō ni

someone will cry for me,

誰かが 憧れてくれるように

dareka ga akogarete kureru yō ni

someone will admire me.
