|I first found out about River two summers ago|
when the clerk at the local video store handed me
Stand By Me rather than the movie I had rented.
It has touched me so much that I had to learn more
and when I had learned he had died,
I cried for the entirety of the night.
I was only two when he died yet he has touched me
maybe more than most of his earlier fans.
I miss him more than I have ever missed anyone I ever knew.
I love River Phoenix with my entire being.
