aloha 'oe

*post edited
this is probably the sweetest goodbye you could ever sing to someone:

Aloha `Oe

Aloha `oe, aloha `oe
Farewell (to) Thee, farewell (to) Thee
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
Sweet fragrance dwelling in the dark forest
"One fond embrace", a ho`i a`e au
One fond embrace, before I now leave

"Until we meet again."

AlohaʻOe(Farewell to Thee) was written by Queen Liliʻuokalani, (1838-1917,) the last reigning queen of Hawaiʻi. the song was written for two lovers in 1878. full lyrics here.

i'm not saying goodbye so i'll just say: mahalo(thank you) for always visiting my blog!

*thank you to harold: the guardian for proofreading my entries.

bitchywitch says: anoh daw? aloha boys?... ay ganda: aloha boys! aloha boys! ako-una-hipo-hipo-one-fond-embrace...until we meet again. nyahaha

The aloha spirit and the concept of ohana are not mere words to us, they mean that we care for other each including those we don't know.
