When Was the Last Time

When was the last time
you wiped my tears away,
held me in your arms and sniffed my hair,
or made my problems fly away?
Turned my sorrow into festive cheer,
or told me this year will be a better year,
watched the fireworks
and cheered
for a happy new year?
Prayed under the illuminated lights,
while the fireworks sparkled in your eyes,
or gave me hope for a better life,
actually caring if I ever cried,
instead of preaching at me to wipe my face dry?

When was the last time
I wasn't empty inside,
forcing a horrible fake smile,
trying not to conceal every emotion
or let my friends know the real problem?

When was the last time...
I was me?
I don't know who I am anymore.
