Dear son…

The day that you see me old and I am already not, have patience and try to understand me …

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

Remember the hours 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 to read to you thousand and one times the same story until you get to sleep…

When I do not want to have a shower,neither shame me nor scold me…

Remember when I had to chase you with thousand excuses I invented, in order that you wanted to bath…

When you see my ignorance on new technologies… give me 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 I cannot 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…
