Te Hokinga Mai, Te Hokinga Mai, tū tangata tonu!

The cry of the morepork, keeps coming back to me. 
It is hooting out there where the paths meet. 
I was the one who allowed you to go. 
It was curbed, my deep love for you 
 
But now the formal return home greetings to you all, 
How my heart weeps with affection. 
Still standing tall is the prestige, and power of the ancestors who have passed on, and who are now 
bringing back the true spirit of the people 
to help heal the remnant crying like lost souls, 
while searching for the true path for us all. 
 
The Return Here of our artworks! The Return Here of our prestige! We people can stand tall again!
