ちっちゃなカメラ - A Tiny Camera

ふと何気なく、とあるフレーズを目にした途端、
いきなり涙がこみ上げてきた

そういえば、
昔、親父がちっちゃな頃からちっちゃかった俺にピッタリなちっちゃなカメラを買ってくれた
ろくでもない写真ばかり撮ってた気がするけど、
それを両親はどんな眼で、どんな想いで、観てくれてたんだろうか

決して裕福な家庭ではなかったけれど、
何不自由ない環境を与え続けてくれた

今度、親父を誘って写真を撮りに行こうかと思う
その時は、俺の相棒は親父に任して、
俺は とあるちっちゃなフイルムカメラで

One day, a certain passage in some book caught my eyes, and somehow I shed tears inspite of myself

Well, I remember...
When I was a child, my father bought me a tiny film camera
and I often took so ordinary pictures with it, I suppose

Now I wonder how my mother and father were looking at me and those my pics with their eyes

Our family didn't have much money
But my mother and father had been giving me so wonderful childhood
and those days couldn't have been bought for money

Well, I suppose I will ask my father to shoot photos

At that time, my father should have my buddy 'FE2'
and I my tiny camera
