This poem is dedicated to my step brother Michael, who in 1996 was diagnosed with AIDS. I love him dearly to this day, and I promise him I will never ever forget him. He taught me very valuable lessons that I will never forget.

I Love You, Michael
I never thought,
I would see the day.
When you wouldn't be there,
to show me the way.
You taught me the difference,
between right and wrong.
You always had a way,
but that was before you were gone.
You'd come up to visit,
but for a short while.
To tease and to tickle,
but you always made me smile.
I don't know how you did it,
I'm not sure I really care.
But I know that you are with me,
I know that you are there.
I cried and I cried,
for what seemed like forever.
But I knew that some day,
We would be together.
One day you were there,
the next you had to leave.
I didn't know what to do,
I didn't know what to believe.
In front of my friends,
I tried not to cry.
But I kept wondering why.
Why this and why that,
why you had to go.
I tried my hardest,
not to let my feelings show.
I couldn't just say,
my brother had died.
I knew nothing would change,
so I kept it inside.
It took me quite a while,
to except that you would die.
With that I want to say,
I miss you and goodbye.
