The Cord That Binds

We are connected, my child and I,
by an invisible cord not seen by the eye.

Its not like the cord that connects us at birth,
This cord can't be seen by any on earth.

This cord does its work right from the start,
It binds us together, attached to my heart.
I know that it's there though no one can see,

This 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 then any cord man could create.

It withstands the test, Can hold any weight.
And though you are gone and 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'm thankful that God connects us this way.

A mother and child... Death can't take it away!
