The Cord - Poem -


This poem was sent to me by my friend Amy

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 it's work right from the start
it binds us together attached by 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 can create
it withstands the tests , can hold any weight
and though you are gone, though your 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 parent and child, death can't take this away
