Taute Lo’u Au

This poet is eloquently expressing fear that this love might be over.

Sau ia oe taute lo’u au se’i fai sau tala

O tumau pea ita i sou lagona i le mafutaga
O ou foliga ma ou fofoga fiafia mata’ata’ata
O lo’o tumau pea oe la’u rosa, la’u fua matala
O lo’o tumau pea oe la’u rosa, la’u fua matala

Ou te manatua le tumua i si o’u mafaufau
O se mea manogi oe ina ia fai o se pine fa’amau
Sa ‘ou musu ne’i le tau la’ua mo’omo’oga
A ‘o alo atu lau afioga pele ia ‘oaoga
A ‘o alo atu lau afioga pele ia ‘oaoga

A e ui i lea o le a ou fa’atali pea
Se upu e pa’u mai i lou fofoga oe o la’u manamea
Ua e tu’u i fa’amatalaga e le aoga
A e te le o manatua o lo’u pologa i le timu ma le la
A e te le o manatua o lo’u pologa i le timu ma le la

  4. Taute and Sosefina of are the same person. She is a beautiful Samoan woman who stole the heart of a man who got the (one) composer of the two songs to compose these love songs for her. Among family members, she is known as “Josie”. Small world, huh?

  5. “Sosefina” is NOT a Fijian song. It is a Samoan song and it has a sister song: “Taute…” And yes, Taute and Sosefina (Josie) are one and the same.
