If I were to paint this grief,
I would use the sky as my canvas,
And it wouldn’t be great enough
If I were to sculpt this shame,
I would shape a new universe,
still too small to contain.
And if I were to sing this pain,
It would rumble the earth
Rise the tides
And shake the sun out of the sky
If I were to write this regret,
I would use every word,
In every language,
But still, it would be incomplete.
Nothing can convey
the state I am in.
The best I can do is pray it
And say Lord, have mercy.
Only you know my pain and my sorrow,
Let your light shine upon me,
And make me new.
Only you know me.
Christ have mercy
On me, a sinner.
