Poetry from Eva Petropolou Lianoy

Metaphor of hearts
The bird said if you ever decide to love me,
I hope you have two hearts with you to give me one ... The last one who told me that he loves me so much, deeply entered my old heart, made it fall apart and melt away ..
Since then, I fly high without a heart with the clouds of the company ..
So, if you love me, keep that in mind, I'll need a heart ... a loan heart ...
 Mother is the doctor for any sickness 
Mama is the country that everyone loves
without conquering
 Mama is joy and sorrow Mama the power
Mama the forgiveness 
One word was created by God To forgive people
 Say it every day
 Call her if they put chains on you
To sweeten it the wound
To bring  peace
My mom, you're unique
 You never told them you were upset With gold I will cherish you 
Chosen person 
 I crown you My mother
 My sun
My compass
