William part 2

 In order to understand , you should go to the poem "William part 1 "
   
Your back ..I thank you ! I know many disagree with the love one may choose to have with same sex , I ask you this time ..try and see past .

I lost contact with William for a long time .

Once going to the blues fest amongst hundreds in Line, for the porta potty 
The sign said "vacant " I opened the door , It was William who thankfully was dressed !
We Laughed and had fun , something different though he had become .

He told me he fell in love with a Man , he said the man was Hiv positive and so was he . They used no Protection in Intimacy. What William did not understand , the man he loved dearly,  had full blown Aids , William died soon , as he contracted a higher grade of the Virus . He died within one year .

I did not know of Williams demise, Until My Brother showed up with a friend at my door .
My Brother asked if they could come in , The friend he had with him lost his Brother .
It did not take long when I poured him a drink , he talked about William his Brother , that is when I began to think.

That was when I knew ..The Brother that he spoke of  whom died so suddenly , was William .

 With a wish to his Brother , please if it's the last thing you do , Find my friend, "the Platinum Blonde " tell her , I will always love her, he in death , had forgotten my name , it was the love he remembered ..the love stayed the same .

The man said he looked for many months and gave up , distraught he could not find This friend ,as he promised his brother on his death bed.

My Face turned white , as I saw the resemblance ..I put the two together . 
It was a message Heaven sent . He too then realized , The Angel of William sent him right to the door of my home that cold , rainy , night. 

This is for My beautiful friend , Never have I met one like you,  with so much Life . 
I miss him and to this day he will not be forgotten . I love you too .
 always ,  your  Platinum Blonde .

    This is a tear-jerker. I could feel my eyes welling up with tears as I read this. An absolutely beautiful tribute to your fallen friend. They say you may not always remember a person's name, but you will always remember the way that person treated you. He obviously remembered you with great love and fondness, his "Platinum Blonde". This poem is going into my "favorites", Yvette; it's just that beautiful and moving and heart-wrenching, Superb tribute to your friend, William <3
