This Card

I bought you this card for Christmas day
So that I could write the words that say
How much I love you each passing year
Now in my eye there is a tear

I realised this card is to small
For me to write in and tell all
That your love means to me
What will I need to write so all can see

Perhaps the sky could hold the words
No not likely that’s just absurd
Maybe the universe could hold my sonnet
Then again too small to write upon it

So what will I use to show
How deep my love for you does go
This card I fear will have to do
To write three words, I Love You
