A Greek Lover

Philippians 1:8, UBS4

For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:8, KJV)

To my fiancé Marla Tolly, Valentines Day 1986

The Greeks don’t love with all their heart;
They use a different body part;
They love with liver, kidney, spleen.
(To me it sounds a bit obscene.)

But dear, when you’re not here with me,
I understand their misery:
I feel a pain that drives me nuts
Away down deep inside my guts.

Yet even when I have you near,
These symptoms seldom disappear.
Though I’m no Greek, I know ’tis true:
With all my innards, I love you!
