Aloha Kuʻu Pua - Alvin Isaacs

Aloha kuʻu pua pili i ke kino
Ka pua milimili a ka puʻuwai

Hoʻohihi ka manaʻo i neia pua
Ka neʻe ʻana mai pili pono iho

*Pumehana ʻoe nō nei nui kino
Ka hana ʻana mai a ke aloha

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana
Ka pua milimili a ka puʻuwai

(altermate lyrics)
*Pumehana nō ʻoe me kino nui


Love for my flower that clings to the body
The flower caressed by the heart

My mind is enraptured by this flower
That moves closer to me

You warm my entire body
The workings of love

Tell the refrain
The flower caressed by the heart
