|Wow! What seems like only yesterday|
has been six years already!
I still remember my shock and disbelief
when I heard those words, "River Phoenix has died."
Today, I still feel the loss and
confusion of that moment.
What a tribute to a person, to a soul,
who could touch so many with his determination
and beliefs, that after six years his legacy
still remains with even those he never met.
Let the light that he shone upon us all
shine for eternity to see!
River, I hope you have found your peace!
