Can I trust you, mortal boy?
You say, you love me - oh sure you do -,
but what exactly does this affirmation mean?
I do not have the slightest notion,
no idea of what you understand by "love"
nad other terms as worn-out
such as this old song and dance,
you call "romance".
Quite different flowers grow indeed
in my small semantic garden...-
so, let us see, if your good vow
is more than just some chemical imbalance.
Is it worth the air you breath,
or will it be just another waste of time with you?
What I call Love, precious and true,
would you refer to this as "sin",
or "crime" and all that silly crap?
Now let me put you to the test:
How often have I heard these words:
"I love you so much, dearest dear,
that I would die for you, right now, right here!"
Sure doing this they're sitting pretty,
but I say: PISS ON IT,
because this way is far too easy!!!
But: do you also have the strength
to be there for me till the end?
Would you have the courage, live for me,
respect my wishes, my decree?
Would you defend me against the world,
fight the doctors playing God,
slap your priests if they came near,
and anyone who interferes?!?
Is the version of you Love as true,
that you would use all means
within yout power
just to meet the urgent plea,
that solemn, final wish for dying
of a helpless her or him,
who lies in pain, who's sufering,
now only begging for the end...-
is your "Love" that of a true friend?
If I lay crying on the bed,
waiting, no longing for the end,
if I decide my time has come,
would yo then be that trustful one
to guard this chamber, break this shell, and free me from this living hell
by making sure my death is swift.
Would you grant me that scared gift?!?
Now that you've heard it let me know:
Are you then willing to let go?!?
Say: would you do all this for me,
would you respect my wishes, my dignity?
Because that's what LOVE means to me!!!
