Dear—.1

To all of the people of a six-month-future, from us who jumped the space-time continuum,1a

Hello3,

it's the vocalist of the band called vistlip,
智(tomo).

I wonder if the half-year was long for everyone

or if it was short

I grew a year older

for me, it was a time to reaffirm the band's size

and then for making an important person part of me

it's okay even if they're broken fragments

I'm an unclean vessel, but I want them to dwell in me

Because this voice is a voice you loved without fail

I want to show you the scenery I see without completely leaving it behind

Being able to reply and even being able to come as far as this point ((it's thanks to:)),

the family members2

all of the staff,

my family,

my friends,

the ((band)) members,

the fans who never stopped supporting us,

because your hands were at my back,

because many sorrowful tears were shed,

after this I'll be full of smiles

I'll make ((the world?/you)) full of smiling faces so that I'll shed tears of happiness

After today, I'll return to being Tomo

It's deplorable that during the last half-year we weren't able to meet fans who thought we would be able to meet

For example, people who were students are now working adults

There were various reasons for this ((absence)), but I think it's disappointing

I want to go and return the minutes of sadness that we gave with twice the songs and smiling faces

Next time for sure, while we're comrades next to each other at the same time

That is a picture of our smiles, so white and sublimely proud that they can't be polluted, and we'll make trails of happy tears that glitter

You follow in my shadow

and I follow in yours

If we turn over the next page, just like in those days, we'll come together and blame each other, and break down crying in grief

Like the seasons that repeat, we're going to do it over again

I wonder if there's really a meaning ((to this))

Well

Having a meaning isn't the point

Rather, what kind of things there will be

If two people aren't always comrades standing next to each other

If that's not the principle

I'll go draw our moments in that picture book

Because even now, I'm slovenly3

and therefore, I'm totally late

I wonder if you're waiting

even if rain and wind rust your bodies together

however bravely

I wonder if you're waiting for my return

At the promised meeting place from before, mouthing the words I want to mouth directly and continuously, now in my mind I think I'll whisper them

-I'm home-

-I'm sorry-

-Thank you-


拝啓—。

時空を飛んだ俺達からしたら約半年分未来人のみんなへ

そして初めましてのヒト達へ

こんにちわ

vistlipと云うバンドのボーカル
智(tomo)です

みんなにとって半年は長かったかな

それとも短かったかな

俺は一つ年を取りました

自分にとってバンドの大きさを再確認するための

そして大切なヒトを身体の一部にするための時間となりました

カケラでもいい

汚い器だけど俺に宿っていて欲しい

この声は間違い無く貴女が愛した声だから

俺が見る景色を全て残さず見せてあげたい

答えを出せたのもここまで来れたのも

御家族の皆様

関係者の皆様

俺の家族

友達

メンバー

ファンが休まず支えてくれて

背中に手を当ててくれたから

たくさん悲し涙を流したから

これからはいっぱい笑うんだ

いっぱい笑顔を創って嬉し涙を流すんだ

今日から俺は智に戻ります

残念なのは半年分会えた筈のファン達に会えなかった事

例えば学生だったヒトが社会人になってしまったり

理由は様々だけれど本当に残念だと思う

与えた悲しみの分は唄と笑顔で倍返ししていきたい

今度こそ同じ時間の中を隣同士でね

それは誰にも汚す事が出来ない程白く気高く誇らしい笑顔の俺達が並び嬉し涙を光らせている一枚の絵だ

君が俺の影を踏み

俺が君の影を踏む

次のページをめくればまたあの頃の様に俺達がお互いを責め合い悲しみに泣き崩れている

季節が繰り返す様に俺達は繰り返していく

果たして意味が在るのだろうか

いや

意味が在るのはそこじゃない

どんな事が在ろうとも

二人は何時も隣同士じゃないか

それが大前提じゃないか

俺達の刹那をその絵本に描いていくんだ

俺は今もだらしないまま

だから遅刻をしてしまう

君は今も待っているんだろうか

雨や風が身体を錆びつかせようとも

ただ健気に

俺の帰りを待っているんだろうか

唇にしたい言葉達を唇にするのは約束した待ち合わせ場所で直接とずっと前から決めていたから今は心の中で囁こうかと思う

-ただいま-

-ごめんね-

-ありがとう-


Gluh, poetic!Tomo kills me with the *__* and run-on sentences. As usual, Tomo has the good stuff and isn't sharing. This is why I saved his for last.

1 This is a Dear _____ opening, not dear as in you are dear to me.

1a I swear to god this is what he says in the most coherent English that he makes it. He uses a word that can double as TIME TRAVELERS for people of the future. nobody knows how badly I wanted to write "Greetings, Earthlings" on the next line /inappropriate levity

2 as in, the deceased's family members

3 slovenly, sluttish, loose, slattern are all possibilities. I tried to go with the least sexual one...unless he's trying to imply that he drowned his sorrow in sex


/falls over

There are possibly mistakes. It's 3:30AM here and I can have 3 hours of sleep. \o/ Will look over it later for mistakes.
