A/N: My uncle is alive & well, but he is gay & because of it I always feel
very strong about gay rights. I thought about how he could be the object of
a hate crime one day & came up with this. enjoy!

My Uncle

I loved my uncle so much
Whenever I needed some one to talk to
He was always there for me

I could call him
No matter what time of day
When things got rough

He gave the best advice
And always listened
He meant so much to me

You didn't know any of this
You only knew one thing about him
You only knew that he was gay

And you decided
He deserved to die

Now people whose lives
He had touched
Are deep in mourning

Because you thought
Being gay was wrong
