54. 忘れじの 行末(いくすゑ)までは かたければ 今日(けふ)をかぎりの 命ともかな 高階貴子(たかしなきし) Your saying that you will never forget me for life Wouldn’t be reliable for a long time certainly. Therefore, I would like to make my life End today the day, exactly When you say so, surely. By Kishi Takashina Translated by Kota Nakako

54.
忘れじの 行末(いくすゑ)までは かたければ 今日(けふ)をかぎりの 命ともかな

高階貴子(たかしなきし)

(鑑賞)
いつまでも忘れまい、とおっしゃるその言葉が、遠い将来まではあてにしがたいので、その言葉のあった今日という日を、最後とするわたしの命であってほしい。

Your saying that you will never forget me for life
Wouldn’t be reliable for a long time certainly.
Therefore, I would like to make my life
End today the day, exactly
When you say so, surely.

By Kishi Takashina
Translated by Kota Nakako

(Appreciation)
Your saying that you will never forget me for life would not be reliable for a long time. Therefore, I would like to make my life end today exactly when you say so.
