The land of the rising sun

As we all know of you from day one

It may look like the sun is setting

But Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Kobe later

You were still standing proud and strong

Sendai will not crush your spirit either

That you have to bear so much is plain wrong

You are in our thoughts and in our prayer

Let us know what we can do how and when

So once again you are the land of cherry blossoms and Zen.
