Long ago, a young man arrived in Japan in the evening, and the next day went to the company that had hired him, to report for work. There, as he was meeting his new bosses, a young woman walked out of a meeting room. She was talking with friends, and walked on by, but there was something elegant about her which lingered in his mind. That night, after he had moved his things into his new apartment, he looked out the window at the moon, and thought of her.
you walked by, eyes glistening,
laughter filled the room with joy--
your spirit pierced my heart.
comfort me in this loneliness.
entranced, I see her
dance in the shadows of my room
as you shine through the clouds.
