To My Brother-in-law
Her father reared her carefully, she learned from what he knew.
He took her everywhere he went. He leads her now to you.
This is the final time he will lead her anywhere.
After today it is up to you, she is in your care.
Watch over her and love her as she becomes your life.
The woman who is my sister, who now will be your wife.
