Thoma no Shinzou

I've been thinking for six months about my life and death,
and about a friend of mine.
I know I am just a matured kid, and therefore I know this love
in my boyhood is going to be thrown toward something transparent,
sexless and unknown.
This is not a simple bet. What I want to say is not that I love Juli
but that he must love me by all means.
He is almost dead at the moment. I wouldn't care even if my body
was crashed if it is necessary for Juli coming back to life.
It is said that man dies twice. He dies on the earth and later
he dies in his friends' mind.
However, I will never die twice because he won't forget me
even after he dies.
I'm sure I will keep living in his mind, he will never lose sight of me.
