The Bud In The Water

Brickwood Galuteria

She found herself in the water.
It eased her body, her heart, her soul.
With such safe holding, she touched motherhood,
and emerged in a very tender and loving place.
The bud in the water. The bud in the water.

The life unfolded and time itself became fluid and supportive,
taking on the quality of the water.
He floated as a lotus down a river, returning to the lo’i of her deepest memories.
Layers unraveled and she surrenders of the Liko, in the water, on the water as mothers do.
The bud in the water. The bud in the water.

Her job is done. Alas, her job has just begun.
Young Liko, she summons you now from the wreath of love
For the child has fulfilled her prophesy.
For the water has given life, love, honor, and hope.
The bud in the water. The bud in the water.

I ke apo aloha o ke kuāuna
In the loving embrace of the loʻi
Au mālie nō ka wai o ke ola
The waters of life gently flow
Lana maluhia mai kahi liko pua
A delicate bud floats peacefully there
Ka liko i ka wai, ka liko i ka wai

Hulali maila i ka mālamalama
Rippling waters sparkle in the light
Ke ōpū aʻe nei i ke aukahi o ka wai
As the blossom flourishes within the flow
A mōhala mai kuʻu pua i milia
And my precious blossom unfolds
Ka liko i ka wai, ka liko i ka wai

Kau maila ē, nei wehi pua lēʻī
This entrancing flower comes into being
Popohe i ke kilikilinoe o ke aloha
Lovingly misted to be beautifully formed
Hiʻia i kāhiko pūlama mau
Embraced as a treasure to cherish forever
Ka liko i ka wai, ka liko i ka wai
