‘Twas the night before……


‘Twas the night before the wedding, when all our town

Excitement was stirring, for wedding bells would soon sound;

The Villa Siena well stocked and decorated with care,

In hope that the wedding would be a great affair;

The bride was nestled all snug in her bed, while visions of her “Dumb, Dumb Wiggly Pants” danced in her head;

And Mike with a smile and Micki with a laugh, has just settled down for a nightcap,

The proudest of parents, with love their hearts,

They fondly remembered how this love story did start.

We’ve pondered the thought; was it love at first sight?

It would become clear on his return flight,

When what to Becki’s wondering mind now seemed clear,

With Harley at her door holding back sneeze and a tear.

Though Harley was tired and under the weather,

With Becki by his side, he always felt better.

The strapping young lad had summoned the courage

to ask for her hand and Mike didn’t discourage

Then she whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

Now Ivona!  Now Amber, Morgan, Kat, and Jaiden!

Let the planning and spending begin!

You won’t believe it!  I found Mr.  Right!

Now hurry and meet him!  He’s the love of my life!

Harley is a thoughtful young lad when it comes to his love,

For Becki, he often goes beyond and above;

Now back to the QuartHaus, the bonfire burning bright,

They enjoyed pizza and smores on the rehearsal night;

While the groom at the bar thought to himself,

This is my last night as a jolly old elf!

With a scratch of his beard and tilt of his head,

This was the moment he would most dread;

He knew in his heart it really had to go,

The beard on his face was a wedding no-no!

Morning would come, and with Jay and Tyler by his side,

Harley waited anxiously to see his beautiful bride;

At last, here they were, it all came down to this,

Finally saying “I do” and sealing it with a kiss;

The guests sprang to their feet, and let out a cheer,

It certainly is the most wonderful time of the year!

And we heard them exclaim to the new husband and wife,

“Congratulations Becki and to Harley, and live your best life”!


love, mom
