   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 to 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 could create 
   It withstands the test 
   Can hold any weight. 
   And though you are gone, 
   Though 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 God 
   Connects us this way 
   A mother and child 
   Death can't take it away!
