English translation

Ladybug

From the horizon,
From the fairytales,
You accidentally flew to my window.
So maybe it's nothing, just nothing.
But this good sign has changed my life a lot.
 
Fulfill my main desire, ladybug...
Ladybug...
 
Summer is over, but I feel better now.
I'm much stronger, I can wait.
Nobody has seen the sun for a long time,
Water pours from the sky.
It's dark outside the window, But I can wait...
 
Fulfill my main desire, ladybug...
Ladybug...
 
Fly to your beloved sky above the clouds,
I have never felt so free as now.
Let the wind help you fly,
I'll let you go, leave me your golden mark in the sky.
 
Fulfill my main desire, ladybug...
Ladybug...
 
My good mascot,
My fabulous messenger,
Ladybug...
Ladybug...
Ladybug...

What a nice song! Just a few suggestions:

но мне стало легче теперь -> "but I feel better now" ?

к родному небу -> maybe "your beloved sky"? It's always difficult to translate "родной"

я раскрою ладонь -> "I open my hand" or something like that?

Also it would be nice to follow the English layout just to make reading easier.

Thank you for your comment, I agree with your translation and will check it again, but when I translated "Я раскрою ладонь", I wanted to make people understand the meaning, that she will not just open her hand, but make the ladybug free again.
About layout, honestly, I'm trying to follow it, but I can't.
Anyway, thank you
