Fiji farewell poem – Isa Lei

Picked from http://www.sfu.ca/~saunders/Fiji/CourseMaterial/Isa_Lei.html. Remember to visit the link.

“Isa, Isa. You are my only treasure
Must you leave me, so lonely and forsaken
As the roses will miss the sun at dawning
Every moment my heart for you is yearning

Isa Lei, the purple shadows fall
Sad the morrow will dawn upon my sorrow
Oh forget not when you are far away
Precious moments beside Suva Bay”

The boat crew sing the Fijian version at the end of the day. Very nice…
