A Love to Know

1 12 2012

I fell in love with you,

We were a fantastic couple.

I’ll spend my life with you,

You were the best I had known.

An HIV positive status was shown

‘Give it to me; I’ll die with you’

‘Till death us do part’ we said,

Let that commitment be known.

Soon afterwards you left me,

To infect another victim was sure.

I felt betrayed and deserted,

Alone, if only I had known.

Love, acceptance and care

Greeted me at the health clinic.

Medication manages my illness,

Precious life; you should’ve known.
