This is my sweet Yiayia (grandmother in Greek).
She passed away last week and I still can’t believe she is gone.
I have a big hole in my heart right now but somehow feel a deep peace inside me. The last time I spoke to her I told her “Yiayia, my song is in the top 19, I don’t know if I am going through to the top 6 in Zürich” she breathed through the phone and said to me in her sweetest voice “Agapi mou, you are definetly going to the top 6. Your song is beautiful and talks about love and love always wins“. And it did.
She passed away a day before me going to the Zürich live auditions. I wished she could have seen it on TV. I wish I could have told her that she was right. I wish she would have heard the happiness in my voice. Something inside my heart tells me that she did.
I love you Yiayiaka. I will always love you. You taught me to be kind, to always be nice to people, to think, to be gentle, to be loving and to always remember to give love.
Thank you for being part of me, thank you for bringing sunlight and love to my life.
