IS GOD CRYING TOO, MUMMY?
Mummy, why are you crying?
Daddy's coming home today, the letter said..
You read it to me last night
when we were tucked up in bed...
You said he can't wait to tickle me again
and take me fishing.
Please don't cry, Mummy..
you can come too.
He said he's been saving all his hugs
and that we could share them all.
We said we would make his favourite cake
with the last of our raisins, Daddy will love that.
It will be the best surprise.
Daddy's coming home in a big boat, then a train
with lots of other soldiers..
Can we go now, Mummy?
Mummy, please don't cry...
even Goldie looks sad... he misses Daddy too.
Mummy, why did the man on the bike
bring another letter?
Was that from Daddy too? Will he be here soon?
Please, Mummy, why are you crying?
Mummy, the sun has gone and it's raining..
is God crying too?
