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 at birth
this cord can’t be 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 it’s 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’m thankful that my heart connects us this way
a mother and child, death can’t take it away!
