The Cord

For those mothers who have lost a child, and those who have lost their mother;

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 been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's 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!
