Στο τραπέζι με την αγάπη μου (At the table with my love) 

By Dean Atta

The world offers itself 
to him and he thinks 
I must have it all 

the Greek word for table 
pronounced trapézi 
half-sounds like a trap 

 

I ask him to sit 
for a meal with me 
serve him my love 

 

the Greek word for love 
is pronounced agápi 
but he is agape 

 

adjective (of a person’s mouth) 
wide open in surprise 
wonder 

 

he cannot believe 
that I love him 
that love is enough.
