Wake Up

I have not woken up to an alarm clock in two and a half years. We wake before dawn, between 4:30 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., soft slivers of pink light glowing between the slats of the blinds. Tiny toddler hands cradle my face, and she kisses my cheek. Ten to fifteen kisses and I love yous while I struggle to open my eyes. The sweetest wake up.
