For Better Or For Worse

A man destined to die of AIDS
The man was gay
His lover stood by him every day
Despite of what others would say
Though in his heart he felt afraid
That it might be his destiny too some day
But he never let him know
Cause he promised he wouldn’t be this low
You can’t leave someone just like that
For better and for worse he once said
But it was his own fault he got sick
It was his own fault he jeopardized his marriage
He even jeopardized another life by concealing this
He could not forget and certainly not forgive
So one day he packed his bags
Left him a note for him to never find
Because while he was feeling guilty
While he was starting over with his life
His dying lover was losing his
They never got to say goodbye
