From father to beloved son…

The day that you see me old, have patience and try to understand me.

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

Remember the hours that I spent teaching it to you.
If, when I speak to you I repeat the same things thousand and one times…
do not interrupt me…listen to me…

When you were small, I had read to you the same story a thousand times until you slept.

When I do not want to have a shower, neither shame me nor scold me…Remember when I had to chase you with a thousand excuses I invented, in order to bath you…

When you see my ignorance on new technologies…give 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 can not 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 I ever 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 your hand…the same way I did when you gave your first steps.

And when someday I say to you that I do not want to live anymore…that I want to die
Do not get angry…some day you will understand…
Try to understand that my age is not lived but survived.

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, angry or impotent for seeing me near you.

You must be next to me, trying to understand me and to 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 always had for you.

I began loving you before you were even born

Will you continue to remember me long after I’m gone?
I love you son…
