Track Name: E Pa ft. KG
E Pa,

Whakamāramatia tēnei ara pōtangotango e hinapouri ana i ahau;
Kaore i ārikarika nga pikitinga o taku haerenga e toi ana;
Kei te ngēngē haere ngā waewae, anō nei e kautū ana ahau i nga tāheke o Wairau;
Ūwhia ki runga i ahau tō mātauranga, to mārohirohi, to hinengaro atamai, tō mana;
Kia taea e au te tipu ake mai i te huru, mai i te māhuritanga tae noa ki te wa ka tū maia au hei kāhikatea nui, pērā i a koe;
Kia taea e au te ekehia ki ngā taumata riro ake i tūtuki i a koe;
Kia taea e au te whakamana i a koe ka tika;
Ka whakatangatanga te pupuri o taku pouritanga i runga i te mahara o tō menemene;
Tīoriori ana te kārangaranga o tō katakata i roto i taku ngakau mō ake tonu atu.

E Pa.

Dear Pa,

Illuminate this path that is plunging me into darkness
The adversities that remain to be faced on my journey are without bounds

My legs continue to tire, as if I am wading through the rapids of the Wairau
Bestow upon me your wisdom, your strength, your quick-wit, your mana.

So that I may grow from the undergrowth, from sapling-hood, until the time that I stand strong as a large kahikatea, just like you.
So that I may rise to the heights that you achieved

So that I may honour you as you deserve.
The grip of despair is released upon the memory of your smile
The echo of your laughter resounds in my heart forever.

Dear Pa.
