When I Turn Old 当我老了

◆When I turn old, I am not the original me: Please understand me and have patience with me.

◆When I drip gravy all over my clothes, when I forget to tie my shoelaces: Please remember how I taught you what not to do, and how to do many things by hand.

◆When I repeatedly tell you things that youre tired of hearing: please be patient and listen to me. Please dont interrupt me. When you were young, I told you the same story over and over again until you were sound asleep.

◆When I need you to help me bathe: Please dont scold me. Do you still remember how when you were small I had to coax you to have a bath?

◆When I dont understand new technology: Please dont laugh at me or mock me. Please think how I used to be so patient with you to answer your every why.

◆When my two legs are tired and I cannot walk anymore: Please stretch out your powerful hands to lend me a hand, just like when you were a baby learning to walk I held both your hands.

◆When I suddenly forget what subject we are discussing: Please give me a little time to recollect. Actually, it does not matter what we are talk about; as long as you are by my side, I am so contented and happy already.

◆When you see the old me, please dont be sad: Please understand me and support me, just like how I was with you when you were young and were just learning to face life. At the beginning, I guided you to the path of life. Now I ask you to keep me company to finish this last leg of my life. Give me your love and patience, I will give you a grateful smile, and crystallized in this smile is my endless love for you.

 

當我老了

當我老了,不再是原來的我。請理解我,對我有一點耐心。

當我把菜湯灑到自己的衣服上時,當我忘記怎樣繫鞋帶時,請想一想當初我是如何手把手地教你。

當我一遍又一遍地重複你早已聽膩的話語,請耐心地聽我說,不要打斷我。你小的時候,我不得不重複那個講過千百遍的故事,直到你進入夢鄉。

當我需要你幫我洗澡時,請不要責備我。還記得小時候我千方百計哄你洗澡的情形嗎?

當我對新科技和新事物不知所措時,請不要嘲笑我。想一想當初我怎樣耐心地回答你的每一個「為什麼」。

當我由於雙腿疲勞而無法行走時,請伸出你年輕有力的手攙扶我。就像你小時候學習走路時,我扶你那樣。

當我忽然忘記我們談話的主題,請給我一些時間讓我回想。其實對我來說,談論什麼並不重要,只要你能在一旁聽我說,我就很滿足。

當你看著老去的我,請不要悲傷。理解我,支持我,就像你剛才開始學習如何生活時我對你那樣。當初我引導你走上人生路,如今請陪伴我走完最後的路。給我你的愛和耐心,我會抱以感激的微笑,這微笑中凝結著我對你無限的愛。
