I Used to Be The Light of Your Life

I used to be the light of your life,
I’d keep you warm while I cried,
Now I’m forgotten and tossed away.

What am I?

A candle. They used to be a primary source of light, and to a lesser extent heat. The “crying” is the wax rolling down the candle.

Your parents
1) well, yeah
2) when there was a bad blizzard, or not enough food, parents would give you their blanket or food
3) some people don’t even call their parents much and forget them.

I think it’s a match… It lights up, gets warm, is thrown away…

Sorry, but your answers don’t work. What about the crying part?
