Båsta nene di tumånges / sa' un na' tailaye i matå-mo
po'lo palo gi lago'-mo / para an måtai si nanå-mo

Stop crying darling / you're disfiguring your face
set aside some of your tears / for when your mother dies.

Nothing is more heart-shattering than the death of a mother.

Tears should be saved for her passing.

Using this logic, we can dry our tears over lesser griefs.
