There are things that people need
But what do I need the most,
Something that makes me smile
Even when it is not very close.

I have a dog who I love

Even if he is very old,

He does not always play
But he’s something I can hold.

I love music and I love my flute
Music makes me feel free,
Soaring in the cloudy skies
Spreading to the glistening sea.

These I dearly love
As they hold value in my heart,
But the one I need most
Is at college creating art.

Gloria is what I need
To me she is a true sister,
Teaching me what she knows
For now I dearly miss her.

I have other great friends
None compare to who I prefer,
What do I need in life
Gloria, All I need is her.
