Questions children ask

I didn’t know
I told her so,
she asked again
I replied
the same.

Where do we go when we die?
she asked,
obviously beyond the sky where
angels fly and cherubs sing
and everything you ever wanted
will be waiting for you,

is that true? she asked,
would I lie to you?
I replied,
she seemed satisfied
and went back to sleep.
