From the translator’s journal ~Remembrance~

Memorial day of my soulmate
is drawing near.

Even now
our invisible string
is still there.

Trying not to keep things,
I still depend on the relics
which console me each day.

Appreciating the relics,
I wish the days will come
to remember my loved ones
without relics.

It will be the time of
freedom from attachment,
the time to remember freely
my loved ones as a soul.

Thinking of pure recollection
with my memories alone…
