That is why I wanted to know if Timo was a son/daughter or member of the church. I can give you many examples. Manuia le aso, Malo lava Sapphira, It’s very interesting if we look at the first verse “Mo’omo’oga sa molia….ta nonofo faatasi i lenei olaga” (it was a wish/prayer of a woman that she lived together — ta nonofo — with her together in this life) and the ending lines of ‘tali’ (Musu e… La’u penina, la’u pele toatasi (my pearl, my only dearest one).
