Sakura, Sakura is a traditional folksong of Japan depicting springtime and the season of cherry blossom.

Lyrics
Sakura, Sakura, blossoms waving everywhere.
Clouds of glory fill the sky.
Mist of beauty in the air,
lovely colors floating by.
Sakura, Sakura,
Let all come singing.

    I learned this wonderful song whilst I was a little girl.
    Sakura reminds me of my dear friend Yukiko.
    I miss her.
