Izayoi's Last Wish

Soon I'll come home to you in the cold grey
Where long you have waited and so I ask
Will you linger for me just one more day?

It will not be long now, or so they say;
My beating heart endures its cruel, hard task.
Soon I'll come home to you in the cold grey.

The fever's spread and all will fade away,
And though in the silent cold you must bask,
Will you linger for me just one more day?

I want not to go but I disobey
Like the winter chill that pushes fall past;
Soon I'll come home to you in the cold grey.

My heart shudders now and so I must pray,
If only I could meet you there unmasked,
Will you linger for me just one more day?

When night falls and I end my lifelong stay,
Inuyasha will have still the hardest task.
Soon I'll come home to you in the cold grey;
Will you linger for me just one more day?

Your spirit lives in our son;
You can help him to find his way.
Guide him to be strong, dearest one.

Your long journey is not yet done;
Though in your resting place you lay,
Your spirit lives in our son.

Cruel children already make fun
Of him. I fear he'll fall astray.
Guide him to be strong, dearest one.

Against Ryukotsusei you'd won
And though I lost you on that day,
Your spirit lives in our son.

The worst has still not yet begun
For Inuyasha, so I pray,
Guide him to be strong, dearest one.

Your deeds shall never be outdone.
Let your legacy never sway.
Your spirit lives in our son;
Guide him to be strong, dearest one.
