And it would be better said: no soporto oir llorar a un bebé.. Using the verb poder just adds redundancy.

These may very well be correct uses of "encima" but I'm not familiar with them...I would have used "sobre la mesa" (upon the table) and "arriba de las nubes" (above the clouds). Am I wrong? (wouldn't be the first time).
