‘auhea wale ana ‘oe lyrics – kealii reichel

‘auhea wale ana ‘oe,
e ta ua ‘ulalena.
kahito maila i uka,
i ka nani o pi’iholo.
ua like me ka ‘opua,
noho maila i ‘awalau.
au a’e nei ka mana’o,
e pili me ke aloha.
aloha ‘o makawao,
i ka ua ‘ukiukiu.
he tiu na ka naulu,
i ke tula o kama’oma’o
‘o ka loa ka’u i ana,
i ka ‘oni o ka lihilihi
ilihia iho nei loko,
i ka ukana o ke aloha.
ha’ina mai ka puana,
maka’ituana he inoa.
where are you,
oh ‘ulalena rain,
adorning the uplands
amid the beauty of pi’iholo
like the billowy clouds
that grace ‘awalau,
my thoughts are drawn
to being together with my beloved.
beloved is makawao,
in the ‘ukiukiu rain.
a watcher for the sudden naulu showers,
over the plains of kama’oma’o.
i measured its whole expanse
with but a fleeting glimpse.
a thrill has overcome me,
from the effects love.
let the story be told
a name song for maka’ituana.
