Stand By Me

Running on Empty

Rio's Attic: Celebrating the Life and Times of a Dearly Missed River Phoenix

"Poem for River Phoenix"

By Irina,
Illinois, United States

Even though you're gone
Your memory will always live on.

Deep in my heart that's where you'll stay
I still think of you each and every day.

You captured my heart in "Stand By Me"
More of you I would still like to see.

You were a great person, actor, singer and friend.
All I want to know is why your life had to end.

Even though it's been five years
For you I still shed many tears.

Even with all of your fame
You had always stayed the same.

Why did this have to happen to you?
When I think of this crying is all I can do.

You died when you were 23 years old
You had no one there for you to hold.

I'll never forget you, that's one thing I know.
And as people might say the RIVER will always flow.
