Inspired by an extract from ‘Atlantis’ by Shane Koyczan:
But if we’re lucky,
Maybe we’re remembered
Along with the sunken cities of a lost continent.
This is for each child
Who is a monument to the one’s who came before.
Maybe the best we can hope for
Is that those we leave behind find comfort in knowing
That we’re born out of love,
And not science.
That biology explains the how,
But love explains the why,
So in the event of our deaths
We hereby bequeath all of these words to you.
And they are only meant to say that
Uncertainty is something everyone goes through.
And there is not much in the way of proof
But believe me, we loved you.
We held our breaths for your first step,
Your first word.
We laughed when it finally occurred to you that lemons are sour.
This is for every time
Love becomes the finest minute in the darkest hour.
This is for those who scour the streets
Wondering where the wild things went.
For the believers who lent us their madness.
This is for everyone we miss.
And this is for the children who were lost.
Sadness is nothing more than the cost of being able to smile
Once in a while.
And grief is the trial we stand to offer evidence
That your finger prints were left on our hearts
And our skin,
And in terms of proof,
Love can be demonstrated in giving.
Our lives consist of the efforts we give
In swimming towards the lost continent
Where you are rumoured to be living.
