"Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow,
bloom and grow forever" -Edelweiss

Be brave, my cherished dear one
We will return home someday
But now we will cross these blessed mountains
Onward to a new sanctuary
This dark shadow over our land cannot last forever
The storm shall pass one bright morning
And we shall sing again
Like we did before
Catching the luminous laughter of the world
Into our pockets,
Storing it as fireflies in a jar
You have so much to give;
Now it is time to cross over
May you know this, little one,
I will be with you
I will be with you
