Lamepa susulu

You are a diamond, the highest amongst pearls in the deep ocean, you are like a light shining in my soul, like a fragrant, blooming rose…

Ua ou ta’oto i le po
ua lata ona ou moe
Mafaufauga e,
ua le mavae lea mo oe

O oe o le ma’a taimane
e tutasi i le agaga
O oe o le penina / E sili oe i penina
o lenei vasa / o lenei olaga

{ CHORUS }

Pei o se lamepa susulu
pea i le agaga
A o se rosa fuamatala
ua sasala

Pei o mata ua o timuga
mai i le lagi
Ua fa’apena lou alofa
ua naunau ta ia oe honey

E tele sami ma vai
sa ou ta’ele ai
Fa’atoaga fua manogi
sa ou savali ai
Ae oe o le rosa e tutasi
sa i le mauga e o Arasi
Lea ua fai ma ou sei
ua fai fo’i ma a’u ave ei

{ REPEAT CHORUS }

  2. I am proud to day that my father wrote 99th his song Reno Fenumiai and so said by his passing two daya ago i pove you pops and lamepa susulu will forever be yours

  3. Ua ou ta’oto i le po………I layed me down at night
    ua lata ona ou moe………..about to fall asleep
    Mafaufauga e,…………….Imagination
    ua le mavae lea mo oe……..remains with you

    O oe o le ma’a taimane……..You are the precious diamond
    e tutasi i le agaga………..stands alone in my heart
    O oe o le penina ………….You are the pearl of
    o lenei vasa / o lenei olaga..this great ocean

    { CHORUS }

    Pei o se lamepa susulu………Like a burning lamp shining
    pea i le agaga……………..in my heart
    A o se rosa fuamatala……….As a blooming rose bush
    ua sasala………………….with sweet aroma

    Pei o mata ua o timuga………like the raindrops falling
    mai i le lagi………………from heaven
    Ua fa’apena lou alofa……….Such is my heart
    ua naunau ta ia oe honey…….Yearning after you honey

    E tele sami ma vai………….Many waters and seas
    sa ou ta’ele ai…………….I bathed in
    Fa’atoaga fua manogi………..Blooming gardens of fragrance
    sa ou savali ai…………….I walked therein
    Ae oe o le rosa e tutasi…….But you are the lonely rose
    sa i le mauga e o Arasi……..On the mountain of cedars
    Lea ua fai ma ou sei………..It’s been my ornament
    ua fai fo’i ma a’u ave ei……And garland in my adorning
