525 - Our Christos

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou, Evi Charitidou

before you live with us,
before you open your wings,
you fell for a kiss upon your earth,
a kiss for us.

In the battle,
you did not only give your spring,
you gave your soul too.

But now,
that you can touch your parts again,
sleep close to us.

Your years,
so few inside life,
so many inside death,
these will be always in our memory,
