Our Hawaiian word of the week is “pilialoha” which means “beloved.” Also soulmate.
Please say that with me: Pill – ee Aloha
Pili means “to bind together.”
Aloha means “love.”
Pili aloha means to have a tender or loving bond of love.
In this song, it says, Auhea wale ‘oe pili aloha?
Where are you, beloved?
American Sign Language for “beloved” is you put your hands over your heart, which is the left side of your chest. [see video]
