In Stillness

In stillness I awake long before dawn,

Our old house seeming to sigh in contentment-

Or is it anticipation?

My heart achingly full of other Christmas mornings long past.

Memory upon memory of magic and wonder,

Of love and laughter.

The years fall away, and just for this moment,

Just for this day,

I am a child once again.
