A letter from old mother to her son

  A letter from old mother to here son
  Dear son :
 One day you will see me old, an reasonable in my behavior......
 At then please be patient...
 Give it some time and some patience to understand me... 
 When my hand shakes.. 
 When my food falls on my chest... 
 When I don't have the strength to ware my clothe..
 Have some patient and remember years were passing  I was teaching you what I cant do   
 today..
 If I am no more pretty and smell bad...
 Don't` blame me.
 Just remember when you were little how hard I tried to make you look hansom and smell   
 good.
 Don't laugh at me if you see my ignorance and not understanding things in your 
 generation...
 Instead be my eye and my mind to catch up what I missed....
 I am the one who mannered  you and teach you how to face the life..
 How come today you are teaching me what is most and what  is not..
 Don't be burred from  my weak memory and slow talking and thinking when I am talking to
   you...
 Though my happiness from talking to you is just to be with you..
 Just help me to do what I need  because I still know what I need...
 when my feet fail to carry me to where I want.... 
 Be kind with me and remember I hold your hand a lot so you can walk...
 Never be shamed to hold my hand today because tomorrow you will look for someone to  
 hold  your hand.
 In my age I know I am not facing life like you...
 But simply I am waiting death..
 So be with me not on me..
 when you remember some of my mistakes know for sure all I wanted was your best interest..
 Best thing you can do with me is forgive my mistakes and protect my privacy...
 May GOD forgive you and protect you...
 Your laugh ,your smile still makes me happy as they were before...
 Do not prevent me for your company.. 
 I was with you when you were born so be with me when I die ......
