Those in Love Will Understand

Yesterday we met the bittersweet Tongan love song, “Ana Latu,” about spending one last night together before your love must go. In class when we sing it we sing, of course, but we also sway, bounce, wiggle and go ’round. It’s a beautiful song; sing along with me:
He ooi oi auee
Ana Latu
We walked on the beach
You loved me, I loved you
Our footprints in the sand,
When you held my hand
Became one path;
those in love will understand.
