Treasure Island

Beautiful Wish


I wake up, hearing my name in someone's voice.
Floating above the blue waves of the sea's cradle,
I dreamt.

Somewhere in this sea, someone's speaking in an arguing voice.
From a crying heart, love can't be born.
Only sadness overflows.

From the fragments of a beautiful wish of the sea,
there is a light that is wanting to be born.
In the orange sea, blending into the sunset,
the tears of the world sleep.

Someday, the source of all darkness will vanish.
That day will come.
I want to sing with a singular love... in the blue sea.

Someone called out my name,
so they know of my wish.

From the fragments of a beautiful wish of the sea,
there is a light that is wanting to be born.
In the orange sea, blending into the sunset,
the tears of the world sleep.

Poem of the Day

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
