Does he …?

Does he give you malted milk balls every Christmas just to hear you say, “I shouldn’t be eating these”?

Does he put his arms around your waist at the kitchen sink and rest his chin on your right shoulder?

Does he know that place on your back you like to be rubbed after a long day?

Does he bring you large diet Cokes with no ice? Unasked?

Does he watch chick-flicks with you and enjoy them and ask you to tell no one?

Does he kiss you just because you are there?

Does he know you jump on the kitchen counter when you see a mouse?

Does he hold your hand when going into a movie theater? You on the left and he on the right?

Does he become enchanted by your eyes?

Does he let you squeeze his arm the entire duration of a plane flight?

Does he know why you like “Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch”?

Does he wash out his cereal bowl and put it in the dishwasher? And then wash out the sink?

Does he give you a card every birthday and write “Always” inside?

Does he cry just because you are crying?

Does he stare at you and wonder how something this beautiful could actually exist?

Does he tell you that after a thousand years, his love for you will only have just begun?

Does he?
