Why is that man crying, Mummy?
He looks so sad and lonely.
Tears like that are only cried for the dead, my child.
But why, Mummy?
Doesn't he know about heaven and angels and God?
Infinity is a very big place, my love
and eternity is a very long time... These things can be frightening for those left behind.
Can I say a prayer for him, Mummy,
that God will help him while he waits?
That would be nice, my darling,
that would be very nice.
