I felt your presence there inside of me,nestled soft and warm;
Sweet scent of baby's breath,precious words left unadorned.
I saw your tiny heartbeat,then I knew that you were fine;
A perfect baby we created,one that would be mine.
Then that tragic day it came there was nothing I could do,
Only wait and hope for the precious life of you.
Yes in the beginning your daddy was afraid;
Only he would love you unconditional and never run away.
He loved you more this I do know,as he cried for you that day,
When the doctor said that you were gone,daddy wanted you to stay.
He would have held you close to him,and see your perfect form,
A gift of daddy's love,would have kept you safe and warm.
Only now you are an angel over me beautiful and bare,
My heart would hurt if you cried for me and mommy was not there.
Still we are together in my heart and memories,
You are still a part of my memory.
Rest gentle now 'sweet baby' there is no pain you are never alone,
I know you are with the guiding angels in your peaceful home.
I will come with you someday only now is not my time,
Then we will be together again, again you will be mine.
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 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, 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 are 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 away.
