Middle Ground

Child, child, when we speak, 
me in English, you in Greek, 
Never, ever do we  agree, 
you're for you and I'm for me.

Can't we  find a middle ground,
something with a sweeter sound,
than, "No you're wrong" and "Yes I'm right."
Can we just once... not have a fight ?

Time is flying, I am old,
you are growing strong and bold.

Will the day come filled with regret,
the day, we wish we'd never met ?
