MIO NONNO

Teach me aged one,
show me the ways of life!
I am young and you are
here to guide me in this world.

Times are changing,
yet it is all so new to me.
I depend on you to be.
Teach me aged one.

Soon you will be
too old and I will be
prepared to care for you,
show me the ways of life!

I cherish your gentility.
You have given so much
and I wish to help you now.
I am young and you are

most deserving to be cared
for and celebrated. I am
elated that it was you who was
here to guide me in this world.
