Au revoir; Ich drücke die Daumen
A family full of Europe
A family fuelled by Europe.
Two Grandads who fought on opposing sides
In that battle that almost tore the continent apart
But instead led to a love between lands once enemies.
A German mother.
A Cypriot uncle.
Truly European family celebrations, festivals, tastes and flavours.
Me, almost trilingual and a teacher of European tongues
So committed was I to our union.
But this divorce now imposed on me against my will.
Because the will of another, stronger, triumphed.
Maybe a compromise will be found?
I live with a necessary hope.
That they are right
That I, what do I know, am wrong.
Ich liebe dich.
