I Love You With My Liver

A Poem

There are many songs about
The power of the heart
But I love you with all of me,
With each and every part:

I love you with my liver,
I love you with my toes,
I love you with my ankles,
My stomach and my nose.

I love you with my kidneys,
I love you with my arms,
I love you with my ribcage,
My legs, my spleen, my palms.

I love you with each eyeball,
I love you with each lung,
I love you with my cellulite,
My intestines and my tongue.

I love you with my wrists and ears,
I love you with my skin,
I love you with my elbow joints,
My ligaments and chin.

Though you sometimes get on my neurons,
And on my teeth, my bones and bladder,
I know that life without you
Would be infinitely sadder.

I love you with the breath in my windpipe,
My love is in my blood and on my lips,
Most importantly, I love you with my brain,
I love you down to my fingertips.
