Caregivers Reminder

By Anonymous and Susan Graham

When I spill some food on my nice clean dress or maybe forget to tie my shoe, please be patient and perhaps reminisce about the many hours I spent with you.  When I taught you how to eat with care, plus tying laces, dressing yourself and combing your hair.

Those were precious hours spent with you so when I forget what I was about to say, just give me a minute.  Or, maybe too it probably wasn't important anyway.  I would much rather you just listen if I tell a story once more even if you know the ending through and through.  Remember your first nursery rhymes when I rehearsed it a hundred times.

When my legs are tired and it's hard to stand or walk the steady pace that I would like to do, please take me carefully by my hand, and guide me now as I so often did for you.

I don't know who wrote this [I modified it some], but I love the sentiment to remind us of both the earlier and later steps in life's journey.
