It’s been a while

What’s it like to be loved?
It’s been a while,
since anyone loved me like that.
What’s it like to be cherished?
It’s been a while,
since anyone cherished me at all.
What’s it like to be protected?
It’s been a while
since anyone has fought for me.
What’s it like to be wanted?
It’s been a while
since anyone’s wanted me like that.
What’s it like to be safe?
It’s been a while
since anyone’s kept me safe.
It’s been a while,
It’s been a while.
Won’t you remind me what it’s like?
Won’t you keep me safe, want me?
Won’t you fight for me, protect me?
Won’t you cherish me, love me?
Remind me what it’s like, darling,
to be loved and cherished,
protected, to not have to fight for myself.
to be wanted, and safe.
Remind me, my dear.
It’s been a while,
It’s been a while.
