Facebook In Heaven

written by: Lakita Speaks

Is there a Facebook in heaven?
Sometimes while thinking of you I wish this were true.
At least then I'd still be close to you.
Insta messaging, timeline updates, and photos with those who you have joined.
That forever love, knowing you're still here would somehow be my growin'
Protecting me from washing away into a sea of depression.
I haven't given up on reality
But still I ask the question
Is there a Facebook in heaven?
Because if so please send me a friend request. Let me know how you're doing so I won't have to guess.
Give me something to hold on to.
Because mommy I'm lost without you.
You've taught me strength, courage, how to endure a storm.
You carried me in your womb for seven months then a premature child you borne.
You nurtured me, protected me and raised me into the woman I am
Who knew that I'd have to do the same with you.
Strength I didn't know I had.
You pushed me to life and I held your hand until your last breath.
Death
Is there a Facebook in heaven?
Or Instagram? Can you send a tweet?
Please Angels in heaven help me!
Talk to God. Intercede for me!
And no religious psychology from naysayers please.
I don't want to hear your concept of how heaven works.
I just want to grieve.
No commentary.
Voice of reason is not necessary.
I just want to know...
Is there a Facebook in heaven?
If so please send me a friend request.
Let me know how you're doing so I won't have to guess.
Give me something to hold on to.
Because in this moment,
mommy I'm lost without you.
