Mürinulü Lizo is a lullaby sung by an aunt for her little orphan nephew.
Below is a translation of the song originally written in Chokri dialect of Nagaland.


Forgive me child
I bear sad news
Oh you are all alone in this world
Dream my child but you have been left behind
The ones you love have gone before you
All you have is this lonely life
But you will grow yet to see this big world
And you shall envy others
For you are without life's greatest gifts
Your mother and father
You will miss the kisses of your mother
The strength of your father
I will sing for you if you wish so
And I will pray for you 
I wish my words are comfort enough
Let not death come near
The best things and gifts in life,
All that is left of your loved and dear ones.

I wondered what it meant when a friend posted the song. The tune itself was touching. And the lyrics here is heart wrenching.
Keep it going Beautiful Tetseo Sisters. Your songs and your voices are as beautiful as 'You'... God's finest creations :)
