When I look at my family line
I see faded footsteps in the Sand of Time
Those who've known the truth are now long gone,
there's nothing to it but go on
with thin, fraying strands of history
and this invisible ancestry
my grandmother's tongue lives in my blood,
but, frankly, that is all I've got
for mý ancestors, there's no song to sing;
they are but few beads - and zero string.
