Lumahai, beneath the sky
a silvery moon fills my eye
a blanket of stars descends on me
the waves sing a soothing melody.
Lumahai, it’s been a ride,
I’ve washed my sorrows in your tide
I’ve made a friend upon your shore
and lost a lover here before.
Lumahai, I say goodbye
and touch your sand with grateful sigh
I shall return some better day
with happy heart to stay, to stay.
