You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Every day and night, my mind is filled with thoughts of you. As long as the sun continues to shine, you can be sure that my heart will remain yours.
You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear
You are the last thought in my mind before I drift off to sleep and the first thought when I wake up each morning.
