1. Cynthia ….

No one knew her pain

The disease had caused

Yet she smiled through the rain

Although her body disintegrated

To nothing but a blood stain

2. Buki …. 

Full of life , friendly , ambitious 

Flamboyant, funny and courageous

She fought through single motherhood

And then pregnancy knocked on her door

Again, alone scared and afraid

Yet boldly she displayed

life within that soon died

Cause YOU showed your ugly face

In the same old sly and cunning way

Taking two lives

As many mourned and prayed

AIDS please go away
