The Chord

We are connected,
My Child and I
By an invisible chord
Not seen by the eye

It's not like the chord
That connects us 'til birth
This chord can't be seen
By any on earth

This chord 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 chord
From my child to me

The strength of this chord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight

And though you are gone
Though you're not here with me
The chord is still there
Though no one can see

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore
But this chord is my lifeline
As never before

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take away!
