Makana, Ka Wailele o Nu'uanu

This is how I love: quietly, away from the spotlight, but for the rest of my life. 

Hawaiian Lyrics:
 I laila i nä pali `ike ai
Ka wailele 'o Nu`uanu
E ho`okahe pau `ole
He wai nö ia e iho ai
E ka`aka`a kou maka e `ike ai
Ke kahe nei ka wailele pahihi
`Ole mai nö
He kahe mau nö ia

English Translation:
There on the cliffs can be seen
The waterfall of Nu`uanu
It never stops flowing
It just keeps coming down
The waterfall is flowing
It keeps on flowing
Never locked
It flows forever

No comments:

We must never permit the voice of humanity
within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.

--Albert Schweitzer

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

--Viktor E. Frankl
