Once upon a time at the Hollywood Bowl,
Kent and Lily first would meet,
introduced by Lisa, his sister, her friend.
There was music and wine, but no love connection,
a seed was planted, but not given water.
Wonder if they could have known,
when and where the seed would take root.
Fast forward a year on the slopes of Snow Valley,
Jenni would pitch an idea to Kent.
"Kent, are you dating? I have a friend... her name is Lily.
I think shed be perfect, she reminds me of you."
His interest was piqued, but it wasnt yet time
maybe the seed needed laughter, sunshine and food.
As time went by, the seed now rooted,
At Lisas holiday party, they met again.
Something was sprouting, a new little shoot.
They talked, she flirted and gave him her number.
He said that he golfed, and guess what she wanted,
to improve her game, is all that she said.
On their very first date,
Kent took Lily to meet future in-laws
And why not include the Kamiya clan.
It was New Years Day, 1998.
I think they knew, that this could be it.
A flower was growing right out of the ground!
From the very start, theyve been an inseparable team.
Their love was blooming a beautiful Lily
Youll rarely see one without the other.
But if you do, youll rest assured,
that the other is just a cell phone away.
Ive heard it said that Lily makes Kent
a better person, brother, cousin and friend.
He admires her devotion as his partner in life
he sees that she gives of herself to her family and friends.
Kents really smart, "shes a package" he thought.
Kent makes Lily enjoy life more fully
He brings dinner to her office, and makes her eat,
being supportive, falls asleep on her couch.
He keeps her balanced, and says, "Yes, dear."
She says "hes handsome, thats for sure,"
she decided to grab him now while she can.
Lily loves Kent, Kent loves Lily.
They take care of each other, Ive seen this up close.
They nurture their flower and feed it with love.
They pluck the gray hairs, from each others heads
If youve seen them together, youd have to agree
They were made for each other, theres just no doubt about it.
And oh, what a wedding, a journey its been,
beautifully done with grace and by Grace.
So on this Sunday, for Fathers Day,
in front of their dads, their family and friends,
with the stink flower long gone, by the lily pads.
She came on a carriage, they met at the pond,
they tied the knot, becoming husband and wife.
And now for the closing, I wish for you two,
a honeymoon somewhere, a hole-in-one, a bunch of patience,
a lifetime of happiness and love everlasting.
