If We Hold On Together ....

Ryan woke me up at 3am this morning for his milk. As I made his milk and just as I feared, Chenya started to stir in her baby cot. 10 minutes after making Ryan's milk and while I was just about to get comfortable under my blanket, Chenya stood up in her baby cot and look at me with her ever pitiful sleepy eyes and pouting `oooooooing' lips...Now, how can I resist from picking her up ...? sigh.....

She saw her `kor kor' (brother) having his milk and now she wanted hers. With her in my arms, I warmed up a bottle of breast milk for her, went back to my bed, cuddle her in my arms and gave her the bottle. She took it without hesitation and before too long, she has not only finished her milk but was also sweetly sleeping in my arms.

I looked across the bed and I saw the most `peaceful' Ryan with his backside up and facing me....and mommy clutching her pillow sound asleep.

The date is 11th June 2012. 5 years ago, my wife and I would be resting in Saujana Resort after our wedding dinner and flying off to Las Vegas and Los Angeles for our honeymoon.

Waking up or rather been woken up in the wee hours of the morning and in the stillness of the hour, always without fail, sets my mind churning, bringing back memories of yesteryear. And the thought that came flooding back was the theme song we have chosen for our wedding, which so brilliantly described our journey before our wedding and so positively re-enforce our vows ...."IF WE HOLD ON TOGETHER ..." (Diana Ross)



Don't lose your way
With each passing day
You've come so far
Don't throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope and glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Somebody is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We'll dream about the sun
In the dark we'll feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I
