Moni: Hello my source of Luana*
What took you so long?
I’ve been looking for you
I looked for you in the Makina*
I looked for you in every Polala*
And under the wings of every Palila*.
Bobi: Hello my Kala*
I’ve been watching you
And waiting for this moment to come
Waiting to become Akela*
Waiting to touch you my Nanala*
Waiting to give up my Huko* for you my Ioana*.
Moni & Bobi: At last we’ve met
Forever in love,
Forever soul mates,
We shall stay.
Moni: I’ll be your life’s Luka*.
Bobi: I’ll be your guarding Lavi*.
Moni & Bobi: And forever we’ll be each other’s Nalani*.
Luana: enjoyment- Makina: moon- Polala: flower- Palila: bird- Kala: princess- Akela: blessed- Nanala: sun flower- Huko: heart, mind, spirit- Ioana: God’s gracious gift- Lavi: lion- Nalani: heavens.
