... My Child, When I get old, I hope you understand and have patience with me.

In case I break a plate, or spill soup on the table because I am 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 gets worse and I can't hear what you are saying,
I hope you don't call me "Deaf!"
please repeat what you said or write it down.
I am 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 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 yourself 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 chase you around because you didn't want to shower.
I hope you can be patient 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 am always all by myself all the time, and have no one to talk to.
I know you're busy with work. Even if you're 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 I get ill and bedridden,
I hope you have the patience to take care of me.
I am sorry if accidentally wet the bed or make a mess.
I hope you have the patience to take care of me during the last few moment
of my life. I am not going to last much longer, anyway.
When the time of my death comes, I hope you hold may hand and give me the strength to face death.
And don't worry..When I finally meet our Creator..
I will pray Him in my nearby death to BLESS you.
Because you loved your Mom and Dad.
