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 ‘till 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, 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.

And though you are gone, 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 G-d connects us this way,
A MOTHER and CHILD.... Death can’t take this away!!
