You are here

Rachael's Speech

Our Mother

You are the Mother I received

The day I wed your son.

And I just want to thank you, Rose

For all the things you’ve done.

You’ve given me a gracious man

With whom I share my life

You are his loving mother and

I his lucky Wife.

You used to Pat his little head

And now I hold his hand.

You raised in love a little boy

And gave to me a man.

Yes, I’ll Marry You by Pam Ayres

Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear,

And here’s the reason why;

So I can push you out of bed

When your snoring makes me cry.

And if we hear a knocking

And it’s creepy and it’s late,

I hand you the torch you see

And you investigate

Yes I’ll marry you, my dear,

You may not apprehend it,

But when the tumble-drier goes

It’s you that has to mend it,

You have to face the neighbour

Should our Labrador attack him,

And if a drunkard fondles me

It’s you that has to whack him.

Yes I’ll marry you

You’re virile and you’re lean,

My house is like a pigsty

You can help to keep it clean.

That sexy little dinner

Which you serve by candlelight,

As I do chipolatas,

You can cook it every night!

It’s you who has to work the drill

And put up curtain track,

And When I’ve got PMT it’s you who gets the flack,

I do see great advantages,

But none of them for you,

And so before you see the light,

I do, I do, I do!

Absent Friends

Thank you for sharing our lives latest chapter

And filling our day with memories to capture

As we turn each page on our wedding day

Lets all remember those not here today.

We want them to know we both hold them dear

And are thinking of them although they are not near

And whenever the sun shines from above

The warmth that we feel is that of their love.

As we look around today, it gives us pleasure to see

The smiling faces of our friends and family.

On this day full of joy as everyone meets

Just one thing remains to make everything complete.

So lets drink a toast to all absent friends

And savour each moment right to the end.

Let there be no sadness, no tears to weep

But fond memories locked in our hearts, to keep.
