A Liverpool Love Poem

Your eyes shine
Like Xabi through
Your lips as red
As Gerrard's boots
This Ring of Fire Allez Les Rouges
My Kenny Dalglish my Ian Rush

You trap my dreams
Nutmeg my soul
You're Shankly's words
You're Robbie's Goals
You're my Premiership Title won in May
My Joey Jones my Steve Heighway

Your beauty sparkles
My guiding light
And warms me
Like an Anfield night
With you my FA Cup is full
My Miracle of Istanbul.
