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 am thankful that we

are connected this way

a mother and child,

death can't take it away
