|River Phoenix, you loved, cared, opened eyes,|
but mostly opened hearts by your
courageousness and generosity to others.
You weren't like other young men.
They didn't love, care, open eyes,
and open hearts. But the other young men
taught you something that they shouldn't have
but that wasn't your fault.
The world is without peace but what matters
was that you tried the best you could
to enrich something that no other young man had.
You know what that was.
Thank you for trying!
