What You Need To Get By - Poem by Terry Donovan

To know that someone loves you,
To know you have a friend,
To know that there's a pot of gold
At every rainbow's end.

To know you have a guiding star
That's watching over you,
To know that others sympathize
When you are feeling blue.

To know that those you've loved and lost
Have found a happy home
Away from all their worries
And where only angels roam.

A lot of happy memories
Of good times from the past,
And knowing that some things you did
In others' minds will last.

But most of all to get you by,
Make life as smooth as silk
Is a box of Tetley tea bags
And a good supply of milk.
