Some mornings I wake up as a child

I believe all of us live with a small child inside of us.  Sometimes she wakes up and demands attention.

Some mornings I wake up
As a child
Seek approval,
Perhaps a pat
On the head,
Or simple reassurance
That everything
Will be fine.
This child wears
Black patent leather shoes
Frilly white anklets
A lavender checked dress
With smocking,
She has her hair cut
Pixie style.
She is three.
Some mornings I wake up
The child wakes with me
Demands attention.
