|River Phoenix has been my life since I learned|
of his untimely death and the life he led.
River changed my view of the world.
I no longer eat meat or exploit animals.
In many ways I try to be just like him,
so that I may be a beautiful and wonderful
person, just as he was.
There isn't a day that goes by without me looking
at his face, reading his words,
and indulging in his memory.
I sing his songs, I hear his music,
I watch his films, and suffer as I know he is
no longer with us.
