You or me - die first 谁先死
I raised the question to my wife after watching the TV serial drama.
In the Hong Kong serial, the husband is asked what was his birthday wish. He said:" I want to be more healthy and my wife dies before me!".
If your husband tells you this on his 55th or 60th birthday, what is your reaction? shock? angry? silly?
This is not the first time my wife and I talk about who dies first. My wife told me before, she wants to die before me...why?
She is not able to face life alone (loss of spouse)!
And I do not want her to suffer loneliness, sadness, helplessness, sickness..... I want to see her lives a peaceful and happy life without fear and worry. I will be at her side... in rich and poor, in good time and bad, happy and sad, to protect and shield...
So, just like the TV serial, I must be healthy to outlive my wife so that I can look after her to ripe old age!
" I die first or you die first?"
" I die first", my wife answered.
May God hear us.
我当然不希望看到他在我离开之后，遭受寂寞、悲伤，无助及疾病的苦痛。我要看到她平安，快乐，无惧怕的过生活。我会在她身边，无论是健康或生病 、富裕或贫穷 、快乐或忧伤 ，护卫及呵护。。。
