The Unbroken Cord of Life (Poetry)

His hand is our connecting cord.
His hand is our connecting cord.



There is a cord that connects us all,

it is as a strong thread of life,

It remains unbroken, forever a part,

through times of joy and strife.


When a child is born, the cord is cut,

there's still no limit in its reach,

A part of its mother and father remains,

a bonding of love with each.


Each breath of life, given by our god,

and remains beyond the grave,

Such a precious gift is received by all,

in graciousness that he gave.


His son was given on Calvary,

by his golden thread, we remain a part,

It is the goodness and a sharing love,

and was so given from his heart.


The cord of life connects us all,

to bond each woman, man and child,

Forever it shall remain in place,

its benefactor, so gentle and so mild.


The Savior came with an everlasting life,

sent by his father to us each,

His open arms to share with all,

this treasured cord within our reach.

It does indeed connect us all. Wouldn't it be amazing if we all could remember that? Maybe there would be a little less hatred in the world.

Beautiful thoughts my friend.

Whonu, this is a wonderful explanation of God's love. I never thought of the umbilical cord being the original tie to God. It makes perfect sense.
