Alarm Clock by Ali Noeding You wake me up in the morning, Most times way too early. You are the last thing I think about before I shut the lights out. You are the first thing I hear when my eyes float open to your sweet but bitter tune. You are the light in my dark room, But the disruption of peace at the same time. I don’t think I’ll ever exactly understand our relationship, We have our ups and downs. You put me through pain sometimes, but you’re the reason that I get up in the morning. You pester me and when I hit your button to let me snooze, You come back within a few minutes to get me out of bed. Without you, I might miss out on the beauty of the sunrise, Or eating breakfast with my family, And taking a moment to look out the window and see the life happening in the world. I hate you, But I also love you. So I guess you could say that we have a love-hate relationship.
