The Cord

Author unknown

We are connected,My child and I, byAn invisible cordNot seen by the eye.It’s not like the cordThat connects us ’til birthThis cord can’t been seenBy any on Earth.This cord does it’s workRight from the start.It binds us togetherAttached to my heart.I know that it’s thereThough no one can seeThe invisible cordFrom my child to me.The strength of this cordIs hard to describe.It can’t be destroyedIt can’t be denied.It’s stronger than any cordMan could createIt withstands the testCan hold any weight.And though you are gone,Though you’re not here with me,The cord is still thereBut no one can see.It pulls at my heartI am bruised…I am sore,But this cord is my lifelineAs never before.I am thankful that GodConnects us this wayA mother and childDeath can’t take it away!
