"But he'd neglected to ask for youth." Tithonus prayed to Eos to grant him immortality.But he'd neglected to ask for youth. So in time, like any mortal, Tithonus became aged in body and infirm. Please tell me what does this sentence mean?"But he'd neglected to ask for youth."

Tithonus asked for immortality, to live forever. But he did not ask to stay young forever, so he became increasingly old. He had neglected (he had forgotten) to ask for youth (the quality of being young).
