this letter for people who love their parent
my child, when i get old, i hope you understand and have patience with me, i case i break a plate, or spill soup on the table because i’m loosing my eyes sight, i hope you don’t yell at me..older people are sensitive always have selfpity when you yell.
when my hearing get worse and i can’t hear what you are saying, i hope you don’t call me “deaf” please repeat what you said write it down.
i’m sorry my child, i’m getting older, when my knees get weaker, i hope you have the patience to help me get up, like how i used to help you while you were little, learning how to walk.
please bear with me, when i kept repeating my self like a broken record, i hope you just keep listening to me…do you remember when you were little and you wanted a ballon? you repeated your self over until you got what you wanted.
please also pardon my smell, i smell like an old person, please don’t force me to shower…my body is weak, old people get sick easily when they’re cold.
i hope i don’t gross you out
do you remember when you were little ? i used to chase you around because you didn’t want to shower. I hope you can be patience with me when i’m always cranky. it’s all part of getting old, you’ll understand when you are older. And if you have spare time, i hope we can talk even for a few minutes. i’m always all by my self all the time and have no one to talk to. i know you are busy to work, even if you aren’t interested in my stories, please have me time for me, do you remember when you were little little ? i used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear, when the time comes and i get ill and bedridden, i hope you have patience to take care of me, i’m sorry if i accidently wet the bed or make a mess, i hope you have patience to take care of me during the last moment of my life. i’m not going to last much longer, any way. when the time of my death comes, i hope you hold my hand and give the strenght to face the death and don’t worry….when i finnaly meet our creator , i will whisper in his ear to bless you because you loved your MOM and DAD
thank you so much for your care,
we love you
with much love, Mom and Dad
