Never gone* - Backstreet Boys

It's been 10 years since papa left us. Time really flies. We went to the columbarium like how we did for the past 10 years. The difference was that we are all much older. But we enjoyed recalling little things about him that made us all smile.

There are times when I miss him a lot - more than I thought I would. But more than that, I wish that my two girls would have had the chance to know their yeh yeh - he would have loved them deeply and they would have enjoyed being spoiled by him and entertained by his antics.

But having said that, I know my girls will see a lot of their yeh yeh in me - and I will try to love my girls selflessly and sacrificially as he did to me when he was still around. I thank God for giving me such a wonderful example to follow.

*Taken from the album of the same name, the song was written for one of the guys' father.

The greatest love of all* - George Benson

I can try to guess. Or even imagine. But I'll never know how much it meant for the Holy One to take away my sin.

So here I am to worship, here I am to bow down, here I am to say that you're my Lord. You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy, altogether wonder to me.

*The first and original version before Ms Houston made an even bigger hit of it.

Ten thousand angels cried* - LeAnn Rimes

It rained (again) this evening - on Good Friday evening. When that happens, I always remember this song:-

*I love her version of this beautiful song!

How deep is your love* - Boyzone

"...When you do have a child no matter how much you think you're prepared for it you'll be stunned by the capacity you have to love somebody."

RDJ.s character in Ally McBeal

I shared this quote before on Facebook, quite some time ago - and i still feel stunned at how much love i have for my daughter. The other day, i just sat with her, holding her hand, looking at her happy face and feel the love inside of me just .... just wanting to explode! I just sat there with a big smile on my face, hoping she didn't notice the tears i had in my eyes.

I wished she can know how much i love her... but at the same time, i know she can't. Not until she has a child of her own...

*Their remake of the Bee Gees classic!
