French poet Rosemonde Gérard (1871-1953) wrote this poem for her husband, Edmond Rostand (1868–1918) who was the author of Cyrano de Bergerac: Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage, Aujourd’hui plus qu’hier et bien moins que demain, which translates as ‘For, you see, each day I love you more, Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow’.
