You may forget but
let me tell you
this: someone in
some future time
will think of us

- Sappho, translated by Mary Barnard.

(fragment 138)

But I claim there will be some who remember us
when we are gone.

- same poem translated by Richmond Lattimore.

The original Aeolian Greek is:

Μνασεσθαι τινα φαμι και υστερον αμμεων.
Mnasesthai tina phami kai usteron ammeon.

(Sorry if the Greek letters don't work - that's why I put the transliteration.)
