For the silences of music

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

There is no music
without silences.
And if you cannot see them
you will only hear noise.
That's how Humanity is as well.
Humans are their silences.
And they are lost in the noise of society
if the strings of time don't play.
Will you remember this the next time
or will you wait again
for my dying for a second time
to hear the silence of requiem?
