My English Translation of an article said to have been originally written in Pilipino by Rev Fr Ariel F Robles
As I grow old,
I seek your Patience and Understanding.
Despite Hard-of-Hearing – notwithstanding,
“Love me”. You’re told.
If I spill Soup or break Plate,
My Eyesight could be dimming.
Look upon me with no hate.
Lest, I get a bad feeling.
If I am slow to stand,
My Knees could be weakening.
Quickly give me your Hand,
For I did teach you - Walking.
If I’m slow to understand,
My Hearing could be failing.
Write down or Motion-by-Hand,
So I could get the meaning.
If I sound like a “Broken Record”,
My Memory could be lapsing.
Laugh not at me – nor be bored.
Bear with me - just by listening.
If I feel so alone,
My Spirit yearns your presence.
Although busy at work,
Find time to be with me at home.
If I become hard-to-please,
'cause I favor only the familiar.
Be careful and not amiss,
I’m exacting on particulars.
If I emit an unpleasant smell,
I could have the Odor-of-Old.
A daily Bath could make me unwell.
My weak Body could get a Cold.
If I urinate and move my bowel in bed,
Persevere still in loving me.
My Life is ending and farewells soon to be said.
Memories could last indefinitely.
And if my Moment-of-Death is near,
Hold my hand and embrace me dearly.
Your love for me brings “God’s Blessings” here.
You and I are truly family!
