|"Oh good! They will all live happy lives" I thought,|
after watching Stand By Me.
"They live on, probably as 20 year old adults."
Then River's coffin drifted past all the water in my eyes,
my hands clenching the computer mouse.
And to this day, he haunts my mind.
His eyes telling you his story,
and his smile speaking his name: River Phoenix.
