    He was standing on the seventh floor opening the door
    "Welcome to life!" he said
    He was on the top of the game as it were
    Welcome to the world he said with a guff

    彼は七階に立っていた。
    ドアを開けながら、「ようこそ人生に」と言った
    その時、彼は人生の最高潮にいた。
    「この世界にようこそ」と軽くいなしたように言った。

    One day, years later I heard quiet footsteps
    Approaching slowly from behind
    I turned around we hugged each other
    "Welcome to time," I said
    The great equalizer of all things

    何年もののちのある日、静かな足音が
    私の後ろから近づいて来た
    私は振り向いて、そして抱き合った
    「時間にようこそ」と私は言った
    全ての物を同位にする力をもった----時間

    I know my little memory of footsteps will be
    Swallowed into eternal oblivion
    By the ruthless ocean called the Universe
    But for now it’s there with all its might

    私のささやかな記憶に記された
    私のたどってきた道は
    いずれ永遠なる忘却の彼方にのまれてしまうことは
    わかっている
    容赦ない、世界という名前の海に
    でも、今は、すべての可能性を秘めてただそこにいる

    Like the death of a butterfly in the child’s heart
    My life, my love but mostly love
    Thank you for being here and now
    Thank you for being you…

    こどもの心の中で死んでしまった蝶のように
    私の人生、私の愛、特に私の愛、、
    今、ここにいてくれてありがとう
    あなたがあなたでいてくれて、ほんとうにありがとう
