While I was lost in thought

was a famous Japanese waka poet.
She was noted as a rare beauty; Komachi is a symbol of a beautiful woman in Japan.

花の色は 移りにけりな いたづらに
わが身世にふる ながめせしまに
小野小町 9

My figure has declined in grace
while I was lost in thought of love and variety of things in the world,

as well as the color of flowers has faded
while I was lost in thought to no purpose with this long rain.

There is no reason to be sad.
Because, you know what true love is.

Love is a flower that should never fade, or die, 
the colors should always be vibrant no matter what the season.
愛は 決して しおれたり枯れたりはしない。
その色は季節がいつであれ、いつも生き生きとしている 一輪の花/愛するもの だから。
