Open letter to River Jude Phoenix


Dear River,



I look around and see all the things that

you are missing now. 



Can you see that the leaves are in bloom, 

and that summertime is upon us? 

I am sure that you can see from where you are,

but can you feel the leaves between your fingers.

Can you hear the sounds of summer? 

I pray that you can.

I want to believe that you are with us, 

walking among us.

Feeling these things for yourself,

with your own senses, 

I want to know that you still enjoy life in some way, in some form.



I have a lot to tell you.

I am older now,

close to your age when you left us.

I will be 23 this year, and 

I have still held fast to those beliefs

that you painstakingly tried to get

across to people to share with you.

I have never forgotten you,

and the things that you have taught me.

I can still hear your voice,

and see your face,

and the way that you could always look

into a person's eyes and feel their pain.



They are trying to release your music now too.

I hope you know that.

Maybe, just maybe, with a little bit of luck,

the world will be able to hear your music,

just like you have always wanted.

That would be a fitting tribute, don't you agree?



I will close now.

I just want you to know

that I still love you for who you are,

and I still respect you.

You will always be my biggest inspiration.



Thank you so much for your gift to me,

and to all of us.
