About the Poem
This poem was written to my brother after he was diagnosed with aids. If you love someone don't walk away from them when times get hard. That is the time the love between you will blossom to the fullest. Let your love grow.
|by Judy Burnette
|AIDS was always just a word
yet now it bears your name;
But it has not changed how I feel
I love you just the same.
We should never judge another
with thoughtless words or deeds;
For we all have within us
wounds that have made us bleed.
So you have an illness
none of us quite understand;
It doesn't make you less a person
nor less a man.
You are still that same sweet person
that I have always known;
No matter the distance between us
in my heart you will always have a home.
