    The Liver! Hands down – the organ for Valentine’s Day…
    Most resilient by far. And it produces bile to help digest all that lovely chocolate.

    Eat away, lovebirds… The liver will take care of everything.
    Enjoy!

    I trachea you, my dear.
    Without you, I cannot breathe.
    Is the windpipe the tunnel of love?
    It allows us to sing, to recite sonnets, to whisper adorations.
    Your love flutters through me like air through the cartilaginous rings.
    When I think of you, my breathing quickens.
    When you’re near me, I let out a gentle sigh.
    I love you with all my trachea.
    Will you be my valentine?

    The kidney! This organ works with his pair to keep our bodies in constant homeostasis. Awww! A role model for any budding relationship – love is hard work and all about keeping balance!

    The pancreas should probably replace the heart. You gotta have that sweet, sweet sugar loving for Valentines’ Day :)

    I agree with regard to the liver – mostly because it’s my favourite organ. It cuddles with so many of its neighbours: the diaphragm, duodenum, stomach, gallbladder… and, let’s be honest, it really runs the show! You can’t live without a liver. And without life, there could not be love.
