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 dirty when eating...

if we can not dress on our own...

Please bear with us and

remember the times we spent

feeding and dressing you.

If, when we speak to you,

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

thousand and one times

the same story

until you went to sleep...

When we do not want to have a shower,

neither shame or scold us...

Remember when we had to chase you

with your thousand excuses

to get you to the shower...

When you see our ignorance

on new technologies...

help us navigate our way

through those worldwide webs.

We taught you how to do so many things...

to eat the right foods, to dress appropriately,

to fight for your rights...

When at some moments we lose the memory

or the thread of our conversation...

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 to 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 get angry...

some day you will understand...

Try to understand that our age

is not lived but survived.

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 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.


Mum & Dad

That's lovely. Goodnight bob xxxx

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.



Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

Thank you Rooster. That just about says it all for me at the moment. I have just read that lovely verse through tears. RIP old friend.
