When my brow burns

When my brow burns and there is a tickle in my nose

I pop a pill and sip my saffron tea

I snuggle up with a hot water bag

I tuck myself and I put my feet up

But I long for you and your cool hand on my eyes

I miss you mommy and your lap where I’d rest my head

I am many decades old but I still want thee

When my brow burns and there is a tickle in my nose.
