Congratulations Mike, your wedding is here! A day of celebration, a day of great cheer. We’ll charge up our glasses with champagne (or beer), And have hankies at the ready for there’s bound to be a tear. So what do we buy for a man in his prime? As a gift for his wedding at this special time. A personal gift, where all of the words rhyme, Though some of the lines may be a literary crime. We racked our brains for the things that we know, About our beloved Mike, the star of the show. Well the story all started 22 years ago, And from that little baby we’ve watched our son grow. We had fun reminiscing we have to admit, Building a tree house at 8, we couldn’t omit, Nor the love that you had for cottage cricket, And your constant desire for a bit of keep fit! “A natural leader” was the comment made, We knew as a teacher you would be first grade. A great scout leader too, for that job you were made. All excellent reasons why our son we parade! Now we’re ever so pleased you have Lianne by your side, Have a very happy marriage, take life in your stride. The pair of you together makes a great groom and bride. From your Mother & Father, who are bursting with pride!
