|After almost 5 years without River,|
I keep asking myself the same question - why?
Why was it necessary to take this beautiful
pure child away from us?
Why was it necessary to cut that amazing young life?
And how come it happened to this extraordinary soul,
named River Phoenix.
But now there is nothing I can do,
except for telling the world
about how wonderful River was,
and maybe the world will remember him as I do.
