Better Than Dreaming

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss

When seeing them smile brightens your day more than that first cup of coffee, it’s a sign.

When you’re having a bad day and you get a text from them with a meme or gif or even an emoticon that lifts your spirits, that is an indication of a deep emotion.

When they leave you a cupcake or bring you a pumpkin spice latte or call and say “I have lunch for you” and drop off tacos, you better recognize it for what it is.

When you are laying there and you don’t want to doze off because you are messaging back and forth, or they are in your arms and you stay awake to hear them breathe and feel the thump of their heartbeat.  Pay attention to that.

When their presence is more restorative than slumber, that’s amore.
