It has been 18 years since River Phoenix passed away. He will always be remembered.
We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds. The days we do not think of you are very hard to find. Each morning when we wake we know that you are gone. And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on. Our hearts still ache with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you no one will ever know. Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill. In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still. There will always be heartache and often a silent tear, but always, precious memories of the days when you were here. If tears would make a staircase and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again. We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain, to walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again
