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

"Rise Again Phoenix, Flow Again River"

By Caitlin Harper,
Chicago, USA

Not thinking of where it would end,
He sniffed his life up,
He rose, the Phoenix rose once again,
He flowed through valleys, the river flowed,

Rio meant all,
All meant life,
Ruined by fame,
Fortuned in music,

Alone he bore the world child,
Alone he broke the fire,
The Phoenix rose to his highest,
He fell to the pavement,
River was blocked by a dam,

Rio, Angel, fought until he could fight no more,
Fought no other battles,
His heart stopped all the throbbing and pain,
I am lost in the world,
He lost the world.
