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

This cord can't be seen

By any on Earth.

 

This cord does its work

Right 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 me,

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!
