A Letter from A Parent

Published July 27, 2012 by gigiwellness28

My dear child,

The day that you see me old and my body starts to wither, have patience and try to understand me.

If I get dirty when eating… if I can’t dress… have patience.

Do you remember the hours I spent teaching it to you?

If, when I speak to you, I repeat the same things thousand and one times… don’t interrupt me… listen to me.

When you were small, I had to read to you thousand and one times the same story until you got to sleep.

When I don’t want to have a shower, neither shame me nor scold me.

Remember when I had to chase you with thousand excuses I invented, in order to persuade you to bath.

When you see my ignorance on new technologies… give me the necessary time and not look at me with your mocking smile…

I taught you how to do many things properly… to eat, to dress, to confront life.

When at some moment I lose the memory or the thread of our conversation… let me have the necessary time to remember… and if I can’t do it, don’t feel annoyed…

because the most important thing is not my conversation, but surely to be with you and to have you listening to me…

If ever I don’t want to eat, don’t force me.  I know well when I need to and when not.

When my tired legs don’t allow me walk… give me your hand…

the same way I did when you took your first steps.

Some day you will discover that, despite my mistakes, I always wanted the best thing for you and that I tried to prepare the way for you…

You must not feel sad or angry when seeing me near you.  You must stay with me, understand me, help me…

as I did it when you started living.

Try to understand that my age is not lived but survived.  Walk with me when I reach the end of my journey, with love and patience.

I will pay you with a smile and by the immense love I always have for you.

I love you, my child.
