Parents Wish

To Our Dear Child,
On the day when you see us old, weak and weary...
Have patience and try to understand us...
If we get messy when eating ...
If we cannot dress on our own...
Please bear with us and remember  the times we
spent feeding and dressing you.
If we cannot speak to you
and we repeat the same
things over and over again...
do not interrupt us .... listen to us.
When you were small, we had to read to you, a
thousand and one times the same story until you
went to sleep.
When we do not want to have a  shower,
neither blame nor scold us...
Remember when we had to chase you with your
thousand excuses to get you to shower...
When you see our ignorance on new technologies...
help us navigate our way through those worldwide
We taught you to do so many things...
to eat the right foods, to dress appropriately,
 to fight for your rights...
When at some moment we lose the memory or
the thread of our communication...
 let us have the necessary time to remember...
and if we cannot,
do not become nervous as the most important thing
is not our conversation but surely to be with you
and have you listening to us...
If ever we do not want to eat, do not force us.
We know well when  to and when not to.
When our tired legs give way and do not allow
us to walk without a cane ... lend us your hand...
the same way we did when you first tried your
faltering steps.
And when someday we say to you that we do not
want to live anymore... that we want to die...
do not take it personally or get angry...
someday you will understand all too well.
Try to understand that our age is not lived but
Someday you will realize that, despite our mistakes,
we always wanted the best thing for you
and we tried to prepare the way  for you...
You must not feel sad, angry nor ashamed for
 seeing us near you. Instead, try to understand us
and help us like we did for you when you were young.
Help us to walk... Help us to end our way with love
and dignity. We will pay you by a smile and by the
immense love we have always had for you in our heart.
We Love You Our Dear Child!
