A Letter from Parents

from Mom and Dad

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’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 gets worse and I can’t hear what you’re saying
I hope you don’t call me dear
Please repeat what you 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 how I used to help you while 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’m always all by my self all the time and have no one to talk to
I know you’re busy with work..
even if you’re intersted 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


If I accidantally 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’m not going to last much longer, anyway..
When the time of my death comes,
I hope you hold my hand and give me a 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 & Dad..
Thank you so much for your care

We love you, with much love
Mom and Dad
