My Love, I am Dying

I didn’t expect to die
Bleeding on some unnamed hill
For a country fighting
Against Franco
And all the fascists
While my heart
Was so grievously taken
By you
I should never have
Allowed it to start
This love inside
You couldn’t be mine
Couldn’t allow yourself to love
Daughter of Madrid elite
Trapped in such a war
Su familia
Suma importancia
I was just an American
Fighting for something
That I didn’t really understand
And I allowed myself
To fall
In a foreign land
So sad
To not be with you
