The Last Message

By Yuu Ikeda

Every night,
she writes the last message
on her favorite notebook.

But the end never comes.
Only new dawn comes.
Only new wind waits for her.

Whenever she writes the last message,
she believes that
the end surely comes.
But it always betrays her.

When the end comes,
her favorite notebook may be blank.

When her relief comes,
her favorite notebook may be blank.
