At the end of a long day, it’s often the memory of the one we love which comforts us and gives us strength, particularly when they’re not near.

But how often do you express this gratitude, this appreciation for the love of someone so incredible that they fill your entire life with warmth?

You could do something big and impressive like make a nice dinner or send a surprise gift to them at the office, but what we really want is just to know that our special someone is thinking of us. And a simple text is all you need to do exactly that.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

– Lao Tzu

Here are 20 goodnight texts to send to the one that keeps the lights on in your life.
