Heaven Keep Gaining - Poem by Lindokuhle Nkosi

Heaven I need a hug
The last kiss
I need that last fight
For heaven you're holding my
last breath
My destiny...
You took away souls
To build on the clouds, sky,
that you never made it a limit
Remember what you give is what you get
You gave us souls
And you reclaimed them to our
peak of happiness
Heaven I need a hug
Filled with love
From the angels above


Heaven you keep gaining our loss
Isn't this tears enough for a lifetime rain?
This cries of lightnings and storms
The pains you keep painting in our hearts
When everybody is asleep
And when the time seems then not to fly, but creep
I move stars closer to sight with thoughts
To spend one more time with the loved ones
I cry aloud for their days are done
I remember when they told me every star shining is a lost soul
Every rain drops is their tears of happiness
And time after time, we're told that death makes us appreciate life
How can it, when it kills us inside
Day in and day out we lose those we care for
The scars never heal with every memory of them
It hurts more everday
We cannot make it past the pain
Suffering and hurt is our daily song
Yet we only pretend to be strong
Even though its not
But in their names we wanna be strong
Though it cripples us with every seconds given
We keep losing those we care about
And at times I wonder if life came from death or the other way around...
We live in spirit of saying one day we will unite with them
And praying that all those we lost may be awarded peace in their place of rest
Heaven keep gaining and we keep loosing.
