Cypriot who died in the Turkish invasion

I wish I had died in an important world war, at least
but I was shot in action at an insignificant skirmish
of a small and insignificant country,
as I doubt they will ever erect a monument
to our war dead,
and even if accomplished, it cannot be compared, of course,
with similar monuments of the larger states,
with similar monuments of the larger wars,
