On world Aids day 2002

I light a Candle

To remeber all those I love

Who have died of Aids

And for their Parentless Children


The fear and loneliness haunts me

Of finally knowing

you can go on no more

Scrabbling together a living

Paying the school fees


Leaving your Loved ones

To be a ‘burden’ to someone else

To face a future of likely destination

All you have worked for is lost

Not only for you

But the next generation


We know the knowledge and the money

For Food and drugs is available

If your lottery ticket is right

If by an accident of birth

You fulfill the credentials to live in a rich country

Otherwise bombs are more important


(by a good friend who its best (for now) that they remain anonymous)
