The Cord

We are connected,
My children 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 children 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 could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

It pulls at my heart
Sometimes leaves me
Bruised and sore, but
This cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that we
Are connected this way
As Mother and child it
will never go away.
