Is the Sky Blue in Heaven?

‘Is the sky blue in Heaven?’
An innocent query
From one now so drained,
So emotionally weary.

‘Yes, the sky’s blue in Heaven,
Just as blue as can be,’
I say as he sits,
His head resting on me.

‘Are there stars up in Heaven?’
He asks with a tear.
‘Yes, there’s stars up in Heaven,
The same stars we see here.’

‘Do they shine just as bright?’
‘Yes, they certainly do.
Those stars, they are Angels
Who watch over you.’

‘Is one of them Mum?’
He asks with wide eyes.
‘Absolutely, my son,
The best one in the skies.’
