Baghdad Tears

On an Iraqi street in Baghdad,
A soldier mourns as he kneels,
Beside his fallen American comrade.

Tears shed for one who died,
Sacrificed to free oppressed,
For Iraqi newborn freedom.

American modern minuteman,
On foreign soil to teach,
Sacrifices for liberty.

American in Iraq mourns,
On a dusty Baghdad street.
A little Iraqi girl... wipes away his tears.
