So we decided to stay home
give them a party on their return
from Antigua, an island far away.
They got married on the beach
have room service and rest by the pool
sip drinks with those tiny umbrellas
live life now as Mr. and Mrs.
We’re sad now that we didn’t go,
sad we didn’t see and hear the I do’s,
see our daughter transform into
a Filipkowski, watch as he
becomes our son.
Happy wedding my dear daughter
we love knowing your life is flowing
in directions we all dreamed of.
Welcome to our family son-in-law
we will treasure you and love you, too
for you have given us the greatest gift
the love you have for our daughter.
