Hilo Hanakahi words and music by Keola Naumu
I ka ua Kanilehua
Puna paia `ala
I ka paia `ala i ka hala
Ka`û i ka makani
I ka makani puwehuwehu
Kona i ke kai
I ke kai mâ`oki`oki
Kawaihae i ke kai
I ke kai hâwanawana
Kohala i ka makani
I ka makani `Âpa`apa`a
Waimea i ka ua
I ka ua Kîpu`upu`u
Hâmâkua i ka pali
I ka pali l koa`e
Ha`ina ka puana
I ka ua kani lehua
Only a few memories from 19 years of visiting and loving Hawaii and ohana.
"Hilo Hanakahi" Gary Haleamau with JJ and Darlene Ahuna
Hilo of Hanakahi
Where the rain is in the lehua forest
Puna of the fragrant bowers
Fragrant with the blossoms of the hala
Ka`û a windy district
Wind that scatters the dust
Kona, land of calm seas
Sea marked with sea lanes
Kawaihae has a sea
A sea that whispers
Kohala has a wind
A gusty wind
Waimea has the rain
A cold pelting rain
Cliffs where the bird soars
This is the end of my song
Of the rain in the lehua forest

This was wonderful in so many ways -- knowing your motivation, seeing the children grow up right before our eyes, witnessing Maria's arrival on the scene, knowing why the last trip was taken. You've done another truly beautiful thing.
Natalie what a beautiful place Hawaii is! I don't think I would ever want to move away from such a paradise on earth. Thank you for sharing such wonderful pictures.
You look absolutely beautiful! And you have such a lovely family. I must say, what wonderful memories to look back on.
The magic of the islands has filtered through your post. I hope the sweet memories continue to keep you warm.
Such a lovely song! Hawaii is such a special place!
