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.
