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.
