Flowering Night

Love and Death.
She wouldn’t die even if you killed her. (I couldn’t resist).
(and hey, depending on your interpretation of the canon, Reimu kills Sakuya in stage 5, she just doesn’t die.)

Love and death are intimately intertwined, don’t you think?
Tooko’s “brother” Sakurai Ryuuto once said that he wanted to find more than anything else, someone who loved him enough to kill him. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? But I can’t afford such a love.

Notes:
“When it comes to you, blossoming like this is… (nothing…)” – blossoming in this case is illustrated by “opening and scattering”.

“Now that this diuturnity is coming to its end, I can say these words:” I would have totally used this if I was more familiar with the word diuturnity/if most spellcheckers didn’t not recognize it XD. I used eternity, but diuturnity is more correct (long time rather than infinitely long time).

Please forgive the long lines in stanza 4. >.> I could have made it shorter, but I lost too much of the feeling that way.

怯えてた心を 夜は隠していた
震えてるこの身を 優しく抱き寄せた
眼を強く閉じても 後悔しないから
そうあなたとならば 開き散ることさえ

obieteta kokoro wo yoru wa kakushiteita
furueteru kono mi wo yasashiku dakiyoseta
me wo tsuyoku tojitemo koukai shinai kara
sou anata to naraba hirakichiru koto sae

It was the night that hid my frightened heart
That gently embraced my shaking body
Even if I shut my eyes tight, it’s not out of regret
When it comes to you, blossoming like this is…

抱きしめていたくて 温もり感じたくて
身を任せたままに 花開くこの夜を
離れないこの先 全てを預けたのなら
眼を逸らさずにいられると

dakishimeteitakute nukumori kanjitakute
mi wo makaseta mama ni hanahiraku kono yoru wo
hanarenai kono saki subete wo azuketa no nara
me wo sorasazu ni irareru to

I want to embrace you, I want to feel your warmth
Entrusting myself to this flowering night
That from now I’ll never leave, I’ve given up everything
So that I could gaze on without averting my eyes

白い時が終わる頃に ひとつの花が咲いていたから
綺麗に朱に染まって
長い時に終わりを告げて 今なら言えるはずの言葉を
あなたが欲しいと

shiroi toki ga owaru koro ni hitotsu no hana ga saiteita kara
kirei ni shu ni somatte
nagai toki ni owari wo tsugete ima nara ieru hazu no kotoba wo
anata ga hoshii to

Now this white time has come to an end; a single flower has blossomed
Dyed beautifully in scarlet
Now that this eternity is coming to its end, I can say these words:
I want you.

握り締めたナイフ 心に突き立てる
今が始まる時 全て塗り替えても
後戻りいらない 進むしかないから
そう目覚めるのなら 今夜しかないから

nigirishimeta knife kokoro ni tsukitateru
ima ga hajimaru toki subete nurikaetemo
atomodori iranai susumu shika nai kara
sou mezameru no nara konya shika nai kara

So I took the knife gripped in my hands and stabbed it into my heart
Even if in this time that begins now, everything is painted over again
I don’t need any way to turn back, there’s nothing to do but move forward
If I am to awaken, it can only be tonight.

離れたくないから 怖くて泣いた夜も
この痛みとともに 刻み込んでいたい
忘れないこの先 ひとつの宝物だと
ただ大事にそう思えた

hanaretakunai kara kowakute naita yoru mo
kono itami totomo ni kizamikondeitai
wasurenai kono saki hitotsu no takaramono da to
tada daiji ni sou omoeta

Even those nights I cried, frightened of leaving you
I want to engrave in my memories, along with this pain
I’ll never forget, now and forever, my one treasure
Most precious to me

夜に紅く染まる頃に ひとつの花が咲き乱れてた
綺麗に朱に染まって
白い時に終わりを告げて いつまでも言えるこの言葉は
今でも好きだと

yoru ni akaku somaru koro ni hitotsu no hana ga sakimidareteta
kirei ni shu ni somatte
shiroi toki ni owari wo tsugete itsu made mo ieru kono kotoba wa
ima demo suki da to

Now this night is dyed in crimson; a single flower has blossomed, in magnificence
Dyed beautifully in scarlet
Now that this white time is coming to its end, I can say these words, forever:
Even now, I love you.
