Musings of An Old Man

by Brian K. Moore

I BOUGHT A CARD

I BOUGHT A CARD FOR YOU TODAY

BUT THERE’S NO WAY A CARD CAN SAY

THE LOVE MY HEART HOLDS FOR YOU

ON THIS ANNIVERSARY FORTY TWO

IT CAN’T DESCRIBE THE JOY IN LIFE

I’VE HAD BECAUSE YOU ARE MY WIFE

NOR CAN IT TELL THE BLISS I’VE KNOWN

BECAUSE MY LOVE YOU ARE MY OWN

SO I’LL SUPPLEMENT THIS LITTLE CARD

WITH MY OWN WORDS IN THIS REGARD

AND TELL YOU THOUGH I’M SURE YOU’VE KNOWN

HOW THROUGH THE YEARS MY LOVE HAS GRWON

SO NOW THAT AFTER FORTY TWO

MORE THAN EVER I LOVE YOU
