may i ask

i'm so young again
who i'm still that little boy
who doesn't want what he can get
and distrusts his heavenly joy

and i'm so afraid
'cause i'm wounded and disarmed
you decide if I shall live or starve from lovelessness

may I ask
if you still want me the way you once promised
there is something that I learned

could you please help me
to escape the cave that i'm in and that i am
please don't leave me unreturned
my fear has gone
