"River: This is to you"By Monica Goodchild,
Many people long for what they never had.
Why do people long for River so much?
Maybe because he could never be figured out,
And people always wanted more.
Or maybe because he could be figured out,
And others liked the outcome.
And that was what he always wanted.
He was loved when he was alive,
And he is still loved when his body is dead,
But his spirit is still living.
He made even the darkest day bright,
And the silver linings from each cloud,
Are reflections from River's smile.
The rain is River's tears,
Slipping off his face.
He cries because he sees the way people and animals are treated,
Everyday in our society.
The sun will rise just as bright, and it won't fall just as quick
And the stars will shine even brighter.
So why do people miss what they never knew?
And long for what they never had?
Because it's River that they're missing.
