|River, if you only knew how my heart breaks.|
Words spoken and I you'll never hear them.
But know this... I love you.
I love everything you stood for and believed in.
I was an 11 year old girl when I learnt of you...
I'm a 20 year old woman today and you're still so dear to me.
You gave SO much. Know that you're a special soul...
Perhaps too special to be tainted by this cruel world.
Rest in peace my angel..
and know your love left a mark on the world.
You bore the cross in life...
now it's time for us to help you with it.
I'll love and miss you always...
