from Mom and Dad

This is a copy from youtube,  and I believe most of you have seen it.
But I think it could not hurt to post it here as a reminder that our parents are
need us as we are later need our child at our old days.
We will never be able to avenged their struggle for us,  due to give birth,
raise and sacrifice with their affection.

My child

When I get old
I hope you understand and get patience with me
in case I break a plate or spill soup on the table
because I’m loosing my eyesight
I hope you don’t yell at me
older people are sensitive always having self pity when you yell

When my hearing get worse
I can’t hear what you’re saying
I hope you don’t call me “deaf”
please repeat what you just said or 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 I used to help you
while you were little, learning how to walk
please bear at me

When I keep repeating my self like a broken record
I hope you just keep listening to me
please don’t make fun of me or get sick of listening to me
do you remember when you were little and you wanted a balloon?
you repeated your self over and 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 chased 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’re 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   one to talk to
I know you’re busy with work
even if you are not interested in my stories
please have time for me.
Do you remember when you were little?
I used to listen to your stories about your teddy bear

when the time comes and get ill and bedridden
I hope you have the time to take care of me
I am sorry if accidentally I wet the bed or make a  mess
I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moments of my life,
I am not going to last much longer, anyway

When the time of my death comes
I hope you will hold my hand and give me the strength to face death
and don’t worry
when I finally 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
