Silvery , Silently

A letter from mom and dad..
My child's..
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 losing my eyesight..
I hope you don't yell at me..
Older people are sensitive..
Alway's having selfpity when you yell..
When my hearing get worse..
And I can't hear what you're saying..
I hope you don't call me "DEAF!"
Please repeat what you said or
write it down..
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 keeping listening to me..
Please don't make a fun of me..
Or.. get sick of listening to me..
Do you remember when you were little..
And you wanted a balloon?
You repeated youself 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 poeple 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 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 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..
If I accidentally wet the bed..
And 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 the strength to face death..
And don't worry..
When I finally meet our Creator..
I will whisper in his ear..
To BLESS you..
Becaused you love your MOM and DAD..
Thank you so much for your care..
With much love,
Mom and Dad..
