I te Po


I TE PŌ (feat. Kaaterama & The Rū-Cru)

Nā Rob Ruha

This song is dedicated to the memory of those who have passed on and celebrates them with some of the most honorific tributes in Māori poety.

 

Te piki kōtuku kua riro atu rā

 

Kua rere atu rā koe ki ngā rangi i runga

Ki o rahi, ki o nui i te pō

Waiho mai au, mokemoke ai

i te pō, i te pō

 

E te rau aroha kua taka iho rā

 

My rare white heron that has been taken from me…

 

You have flown to the heavens above,

To your many loved ones beyond the veil

Leaving me lost and alone

In the darkness

 

My adored feather of affection that has fallen…
