いつかんだへ ばたく
めた

に めたいを 
にもれられぬように ざしてた
この宿る  
それこそがきるなんだと

つかないように に 
(とげ)を(まと)いるため 
(ひと)をつけていた

てしないいのに してた
(め)をらしていたって はやってるから
あなたへのいがくれた さとさは 
める

(とき)をと  
それこそが宿使(さだめ)なんだと

かけがえのないと を 
るためう へのいて

ゆずれないいのに えたのは
がる へと
あなたがしてくれた やかな
そうめたから

けてきたを らないように 
このう  いて

てしないいのに してた
(め)をらしていたって はやってるから
あなたへのいがくれた さとさは
める
