Hellon....damn you write so so good, although this is sad, it is beautiful, I mean really breathtaking, save to my favs and to be completely honest, im gutted I read this on a sneak read at work as one is feeling a little emotional now.
Children are perfect before start to grow up. At this point the world starts to pollute their purity. This childs question is innocent and comes from his natural mind of curiosity and wonder. His mother knows this and despite her anguish she soothes her childs journey from his life and hers too. This is the love of a mother combined with the complete trust of her child.

Would it be too sumptuous to ask : Is one of the d s missing??
Congratulations on this winning poem, Hellon. It is a very touching write. Indeed, what to say to a small child, when it wants to know what comes after this life... You worded it well.
I hope no one stole this poem, like they once stole another poem you wrote for a member of your family that died?
