JH Sayyar's Sonnets

294
Ah! Who will tell me what death and life?
Yea! It is a hidden mystery for all of us
Between life and death there is hard strife,
Death gives peace but life makes life fuss,
We die and go to heaven of in dark hell,
But those who die on earth cannot be seen,
Where they and live? Yea! Who can tell?
Soul flies to heaven but where has it been?
Body inters in grave and is eaten by soil,
What does she do in heaven? Or as spive,
Do Gnaws her fellow souls with more toil,
O Lady, we are eaten always where live

Ah! Our life into death and death into life
Mingles but what is love? Nothing but strife
