This waiata by Hirini Melbourne says that it is time to work in the garden to plant the seeds, lest later we are asked "where were you?" We all need to contribute to make our world better, whether we grow love for others, support for Te Reo, or whatever we see as our loving support for others given who we are and where we are in our community.

I learnt this waiata many years ago, and I have loved it ever since. But my ability to speak Maori is very rusty now, because I've been living outside of Aotearoa/New Zealand for so long.
