လွမ်း | loon3 MP3 Audio File

When you miss someone, you can use the word လွမ်း| loon3. လွမ်းနေတယ်။| loon3 nay2 deare2 means missing someone. We get that feeling when we are away from home or someone that we love.

Most of us live our lives under the illusion that our happiness, and loved ones will last forever. We tend to forget the impermanent nature of our existence until someone close dies. Only then reality hits us.

The images below are the sobering reminders. Once the most powerful people on earth, the former leaders of the Superpowers, US President Richard Nixon, and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev couldn't help, but cried at the funerals of their beloved wives.

Pat Nixon died on June 22, 1993. Raisa Gorbachev funeral was held on September 23, 1999.
