Cuba Nos Une

Jose Marti

Cuba nos une en extranjero suelo,
Auras de Cuba nuestro amor desea:
Cuba es tu corazón, Cuba es mi cielo,
Cuba en tu libro mi palabra sea.

Cuba unites us in a foreign land,
Our love longs for Cuban dawns:
Cuba is your heart, Cuba is my sky,
In your book, Cuba is my word.

Jose Marti spent most of his life in exile from his beloved Cuba. The Spanish authorities barred him from entering the country because of his revolutionary views. He lived in Mexico, Guatemala and the USA before returning to Cuba in 1895. He was killed in battle there the same year.
