When you lose a child


I still can’t get over the thought that anyone can lose a child, at any time, unexpectedly, for no obvious reason…and still be expected to go on with their life. I am still in tears, and still grieving with The Progressive Parent for the loss of their 14 m/o son who passed away in his sleep today.
Let’s remember how fragile this life is, and let us all treasure every single moment, because every moment could be the last one we have with our loved ones.

“The Cord

by Unknown Author

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 been 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’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 Life
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can’t take it away!”
