Child, when my I eyes failed me
And I intentionally broke a glass or plate
Don’t get mad and be angry with me
Your forgiveness, my joy if I can have.
Please don’t be annoyed and shout at me
When I can’t audibly hear what you say
Have patience my child, age is finally coping up with me
Just kindly repeat the whole phrase, if you may.
If one morning, I have difficulty getting up
Do offer your hand and help me out
Just when I offer mine when you’re starting up
To make your first few steps that made me proud.
Child, don’t laughed or be annoyed listening to my weird remarks
Even though, I sounded like a broken record at times
Remember those balloons you saw at the park
You never stop crying until I bought one for a dime.
Don’t get irritated by my unpleasant smell
I’m prone to colds, so I’m lazy taking a shower
But have you forgotten your grandma’s diaper tale
That you really stink, every time I change your diaper.
How I wish we share light moments again
Light talks and laughter I still endear
Remember the teddy bear’s story, you’ve told me again and again
I’ve never get tired listening, though your words are choppy and unclear.
And if my time to go has come
Please be at my bedside for a while
Hold my hands for the last time
So I can face death with a smile.
But don’t you worry my darling
When its my day to face my Lord, you know what?
I’ll ask Him to guide your life and give you much blessings
Because you’ve been a good child, to your Mom and Dad.
