THANKS GOD FOR A TRULY WONDERFUL WEDDING!]
Weather and wonders indeed truly COOPERATED,
Thanks to all Sisters of St. Claire for the DEED;
Have been praying and passing by, always at KATIPUNAN —
To offer bunch of eggs for those contemplative NUN!
Though it drizzled a bit at the Sanctuary at ANGELFIELDS,
‘Twas shower from heaven a blessing of watery BEADS;
And as SHAYNA ambulated near the POND with swimming SWAN,
I was excitedly watching with my trembling right HAND…
[Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista with my siblings: L-R – Wilson, William and Warren]
Thanks for Mayor HERBERT for coming up so QUICK,
‘Twas when his name was called to line up like part of a CLIQUE;
And Mayor HERBERT shouted out: “PRESENT!”…so loud and so CLEAR…
His partner ELOISA ogled at him; so loving, so DEAR!
And as the DRONE flew above to sort of capture a SHOT,
My heart was thumping as though gaily jumping out from a POT;
And as I saw CHESKA and ALEE both happy but TEARY-EYED,
I told myself not to cry, though I cried a bit… thereafter I LIED!
Thanks to VIMI’s father who served as MINISTER,
‘Twas actually through his words that I learned what’s all that MATTER…
Pastor RANEL explained truly well the RITE’s SIGNIFICANCE,
‘Twas truly enlightening, no one would feel so ASKANCE!
Thanks for KIMG and BAM for the SET-UP, so NICE…
The calligraphy on the SIGNAGES so pretty, on THRICE…
Brought me wondrous feeling like the song EIDELWEISS —
And the white-splashed entrance door, ’twas a plan that was truly WISE!
But the MARRIAGE CONTRACT got left in the CAR,
The signing ceremony — I quickly made something BIZARRE;
I asked the coordinator to just slip a sheet of PAPER,
Both lovers signed on a DUMMY, it truly was a CAPER!
But PAL’s JIMMY BAUTISTA was truly so OBSERVANT,
He’s not only a keen observer but a jet setting BON VIVANT;
“Why was the contract not passed to us for signing?” … he aptly SAID,
Contract signing got done on the dining table … I received no UPBRAID!
And the food served by BIZU was truly DELICIOUS,
The RACLETE side-bar was felt by many as PRECIOUS;
Almost everyone lined up while the cheese-melting CONTINUED,
The boiled potatoes got scarce thus green salad was thereafter USED!

And the decanters and carafes of WINE,
Brought from Aussie county by my cuz who’s so DIVINE;
Loved the MOSCATO so much, either PINK or the WHITE—
BETH my cutie cuz, was live-wire at the party, ’tis so full of LIFE!
I wish to thank all the guests for a NIGHT of FUN,
But really ‘tis still not at all completely DONE;
I have TWO (2) other daughters that will still be SPUN,
And a dashing debonair, that’s Anthony — my ONLY SON!
CONGRATULATIONS INDEED to VIMI and SHANE,
You’ve come up with a wedding that has acquired a GLOSSY NAME;
Your wedding video could really indeed go VIRAL,
As GRANDPA however, I’d hope that you’d quickly go PRENATAL!!!!
CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN TO YOU… SHAYNA and VIMI!
