Good Luck Son, Love Dad

by Becky Kern-Taylor

I once knew a man named Harry
Whose son was going to marry.
He texted his son and he said.
"Dear son are you using your head."

"You're going to have a new life,"
"You'll be taking on a new wife."
"You know things are going to change."
"They might even feel very strange."

"But don't let me stand in your way."
"I know you'll remember today."
"As one of your happiest then,"
"You'll think back again and again."

The son said, "But Dad you're confused',
" And frankly I'm kind of amused,"
"The wedding's tomorrow you know."
"Today has been laid back and slow."

Then Harry said "Yes son you're right,"
"But you know this is your last night."
"Tomorrow will change everything,"
"Cause that's what a marriage will bring."
