can i go to the garden again
is there a path
away from my sins

is your gate left open
will my journey be free
it there just one flower
left for me

can i go to the garden again
the world plays a game
and i never win

is the harvest complete
nothing left on the vine
fragrence of petals
none of them mine

can i go to the garden again
is the world full of endings
with nothing to begin

has love lost it’s season
and dreams lost their time
have words lost their meaning
and poems lost their rhyme

can i go to the garden again
i standfast by your hedgerow
you tell me when

and if time has past me
and i must live in desire
i’ll savor your blossoms
consumed by your fire

can i go to the garden again
just one more trip
oh, for spring again and again
