The Meaning of Love

Does he even love you
if he doesn’t kiss your face?
Or run his fingers through your hair
and take you on a date?

Does he even love you
if he doesn’t hold the door?
Make you dinner every night
and swear he loves you more?

Does he even love you
unless he gives you mounds of cash?
And dips into his savings plan
to pay off all your debt?

Does he even love you
if he doesn't make a vow?
To shave his head then wash your feet
and worship you somehow?

Does he even love you
if he doesn’t leave his home?
Buy a cloak and say some prayers
and disconnect his phone?

Does he even love you
if he doesn’t feel afraid?
And flee the country in the night
and drink your Flavor Aid?
