From the anime Dantalian no Shoka

The moon silently tells, 
in a voice unheard by all,
of the ever-repeating rise of the tide,
whose sight I remember from my fading memories.
The stars secretly tell,
with letters known by none,
of the infinite,
swirling word that birth books beyond count.
The sky is too vast for one such as me,
and the pace of time is far too swift.
Forever lost, 
the words gathered for naught will simply rot away inside the earth.
Even so,I will shout out,
I will raise my voice, not knowing why.
At least its echo can reach the heavens,
and before long the sun will rise.
The creeping darkness answered,
“No one has seen the future.”
I raise my hand to the sky and grab the frigid wind.
Blow as gale, O despair! 
All the dreams and agony remain in the past. 
The world is in a slumbering twilight.
I go on,
to an unknown tomorrow!
