The Reward of Courage

By Shino Yume

Just for one day,
God gave me courage,
And I made a friend.
But just for one day.

It's nice to talk to people.
I've stirred a memory,
Somewhere forgotten.
Now I remember.

Friend, It's a shame I only got to talk to you once.
I guess "See you tomorrow." was just another fals promise.
That's too bad, because I enjoyed talking to you, friend.

I suppose asking God for another favor,
To see him again, was just a bit too much.
But that's okay, I think.
I think courage was enough
To give me happiness to remember
For a long, long time.

Friend,
It was nice talking to you.
