40873 - At the time of the funeral

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Time came, Konstantine
for you to live again
within your land
that you so loved
and if you were sacrificed
it was for that land
because you saw
that these occupied territories
were forgotten
even by those captured
however you never
let anybody
wound it
for as long as you were alive
and now
it’s your own memory
which fights
for its future.
