For Daughters and Sons

Dear Son

The day that you see me old and I am already not, have patience and try to understand me...

If I get dirty when eating, if I cannot dress, have patience. Remember the hours I spent teaching it to you.

If, when I speak to you, I repeat the same things thousands of times, do not interrupt me, listen to me.
When you were small, I had to read to you thousands times the same story until you get to sleep.

When I do not 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 that you wanted 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 so many things, to eat good, to dress well, 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 cannot do it, do not become nervous.. As the most important thing is not my conversation but surely to be with you and to have you listening to me.

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

When my tired legs do not allow me to walk, give me your hand the same way I did when you gave your first steps.

Soem day you will discover that, despite my mistakes, I always wanted the best for you and that I tried to prepare the way for you.
You must not feel sad, angry or impotent for seeing me near you. You must be next to me, try to understand me and help me as I did it when you started living.

Help me to walk, help me to end my way with love and patience. I will pay you by a smile and by the immense love I have had always for you.

I love you son...
Your father.
