I wanna grow old with you

That's a title of a song, by Adam Sandler. And this is the lyrics.

I wanna make you smile whenever youre sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

Ill get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

Ill miss you
Ill kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Ill need you
Ill feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if youve had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

There's a reason why I'm posting this. Well yesterday I went to Hospital Serdang to accompany my dearest to do her physiotherapy. And we were placed behind a curtain (why this seems to sound so wrong? hehe) when we heard a few people are coming into the same room. Surprisingly, they were; a couple and a physiotherapist. I was so curious to see who they really are, so I took a peek and suprisingly, I saw a very old granpa on a wheelchair. He had lost both legs, due to critical diabetis I reckon. So, the physiotherepist told him what to do. Basically sweet grandpa needs to practice how to use one hand to hold something like color rods and at the same time another hand will move the wheelchair. And grandma supports him all the way. But at times she will marah2 a bit, saying things like, "Abang, jauh lagi nak susun tu, dekat lagi. Ke depan lg sikit".

Grandpa kept on saying "Don't worry Darling, I can do this." (He speaks English, and I think that was so sweet okkaayy. Sobs). And he looked really restless when the session is over. His hands were shaking a bit. I thought that the grandma was a bit garang-like, but actually she is a very nice person because surprisingly she talked to us on our ways out. Hee.

At this very moment I'm only thinking of one person whom I want to grow old with. Smiles.

p/s: To Bubub, if you're reading this, thank you for the song. You made me love you.
