The Cord
(In Loving Memory Poems)

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 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 God
connects us this way ..
A mother and child
death can’t take, that away!
