Map of the World

If guilt is a teacher
I’m learning my lesson.
My mistake has cost you
your most precious blessing.
I’ve injured my own self
and damaged our friendship.
There’s no coming back
from such a horrible misstep.

I know this transgression
can’t be forgiven.
There’s no reversal of fortune
of avail to us living.
So I’ll carry the burden of
the harm I’ve inflicted.
And you’ll bury your child,
both our hearts are afflicted.
