Hi, I was wondering if anyone can translate this postcard:

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello ChristineSmith20,

I've looked over your postcard and I can make out parts of it but not the whole thing. I am not a native speaker of Greek so I haven't read much handwritten Greek. If you still have not been able to get it translated maybe someone can help me fill in the other bits.

"Top left: Athens,
9th of September 1924

Bottom left: My dear brother
It's been years since
my eyes saw your eyes
it's their big lament
in front of you to cry

Bottom right: My respected uncle
take a body without soul
one with no blood left
take it within my photograph
to see myself

I kiss you on your right*
your nephew "thodorakis"

*on your right cheek

Hope this helped,
really touching poems and letter,
