When was the last time you heard the birds sing?
When you last acknowledged the happiness people bring
When you waited for dawn with breath bated
When you felt more than just anger and hatred

When was the last time you held your beloved?
Told her what she meant, how much she was loved
When you would give the world for her one smile
When for her you’d walk the longest mile

When was the last time you kissed your child good night?
And held her close ‘cause she was afraid of the night
When her angelic smile made you burst into tears
When she trusted you to help her with her fears

When was the last time you remembered your parents with pride?
When they thought you’d never have anything to hide
When trivial matters got more space than what they desired
When thoughts of them only seemed to make you tired

When was the last time you felt everything was right
When the days didn’t make you shiver with fright
When was it last you felt you were in heaven
When was it last you asked when
