“The Cord”
We are connected, my child and I,
by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.
It’s not like the cord that connects us ‘til birth
The cord can’t been seen by any on Earth.
This cord does it’s work from the start.
It binds us together attached to my heart.
I know that it’s there though no one can see
The invisible cord from my child to me.
The strength of this cord is hard to describe.
It can’t be destroyed, it can’t be denied.
It’s stronger than any cord man could create.
It withstands the test, can hold any weight.
And though you are gone, though you’re not here with we,
The cord is still there, but no one can see.
It pulls at my heart, I am bruised….I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline as never before.
I am thankful that God connects us this way
A mother and child, death can’t take it away!
Love, Mom.
