Good night. Sleep well.
It’s just a few simple words really, but people in her past might not have done the same.
It’s more than just words. It’s letting her know, ‘You are the last person I want to talk to today’ and that ‘You are the last person I’m thinking of before I go to sleep’.
When you can’t be there next to her, those few words tell her, ‘I want to be if I could.’
And you turn over in your own bed, imagining when she was right there next to you, looking forward to the next time she is.
You imagine a future where you don’t have to say goodbye, but a good night or a good morning in person. She’ll be right in front of you when you close your eyes. And when you open them to let the light in, she’s right there in front of you.
But until that day comes, a text will have to do.
It’s a genuine compliment that makes her heart flutter, something that might be the highlight of what could have been a rough day for her.
It’s a small indication to her saying, ‘I can go to bed at ease now.’
It’s a little sign that says you are still hers and your heart beats for her.
It’s more than a good night text.
It’s a simple action saying, ‘you matter to me.’
It’s easy to get caught up in busy schedules and forgetting little things. It’s easy to put people we love on lurch. But a goodnight text at the end of a long day comes to mean so much. It freezes every stress, tiredness, and everything that went wrong; and in her mind, she’s thinking of the same thing, that —
‘I chose you today and I’ll choose you again tomorrow and every day after that.’
