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 on the earth strife,
Death gives peace but life makes life fuss,
We die and go to heaven in the dark hell,
But those who die on earth cannot be seen,
Where they live? Yea! Who can me tell?
Soul flies to heaven but where has it been?
Body inters in the grave and 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 we live

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