04-01 My Stepmother, My Friend
My Stepmother, My Friend

My love for you has grown since you took my father's name,
I know it wasn't easy but you loved us all the same.

I realize just how hard it really must have been,
to begin a whole new life and to help us all fit in.

This hanky is a token of the love I hold for you,
please keep this as a memory of the day I say "I Do".

I'm so thankful we are family and I lovingly extend,
my gratefulness to you my stepmother and my friend.

With All My Love

You Are So Special

In life there are milestones each rare and so sweet,
sharing with loved ones makes them complete.

So having you near on my wedding day,
you'll add to the meaning in your special way.

I have looked forward and also looked back,
so many times you have kept me on track.

Again and again you've come into view,
so today and forever I'm grateful for you.

I Am So Glad You Are In My Life.

A Daughter's Heart

You've filled a special place inside this daughter's heart,
you showed how much you cared for me from the very start.

I am so very thankful for this love that you have shown,
I always knew you thought of me as if I were your own.

Soon I will be married now my life begins anew,
I'll take your guidance with me in all the things I do.

All daughters need a father and a friend is needed too,
I was double blessed with these when I found them both in you.

With All My Love
