The conversation ended as it always began, with one word. Why? I always began it with how I finished it, with my resignation.  Her questions were endless about rainbows and stars, and how come she could swim like a fish but couldn't fly like a bird.  Sometimes I'd cheat and say ask your mother.  She tells me she did and her mother said to ask me.  

You want me to ask God again daddy. She sucks on her lower lip, doe eyed and waiting.  No I tell her, just wait till I'm there.  We'll ask him together.  Go to sleep, daddy has to go to work in the morning.
