Dear wife,
we were so hopeful
in the first days.

How could I know
that the new land
would kill you
and end my dreams.

Gaman,
we told each other
Gambatte.
Shikkari shi nasai.

Persevere,
Don’t give up,
Try harder.

How could a life begun
with so much hope
and lived with such passion
end in ashes?

I never told you
how sorry I was.
