My great grandmother,
Named me Tonu,
After Tonu Laijinglembi,
Told me she was the prettiest.

Told me many stories
Such great descriptive stories,
That I could see in my eyes,
As she narrated.

I remember only goodness,
I remember only laughter,
I remember your pampering,
But you left too soon.

And with you,
You took my name,
You left many stories unfinished,
I have missed you and I miss you.

~The End~ 

~Dedicated to my great grandmother with whom I spent my early childhood, very few years but left me memories which will last my lifetime~
