We are connected my child and I, By an invisible cord not seen by the eye It' not like the cord that connects us at 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 thought no eye 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 pull 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! Author unknown
IF I Knew / Ruth (MOM) IF I KNEW
If I knew it would be the last time That I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day.
If I knew it would be the last time,! I could spare an extra minute to stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I'm sure you'll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right.
There will l always be another day to say "I love you," And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do?"
But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day,
That you didn! 't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out t o be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear
Take time to say "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay." And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
Didn't Have Time To Say Goodbye / Ruth Marin-Eason (Mom) In Loving Memory of Raul A. Marin II August 29, 1968 to August 5, 1998
Didn't have time to say goodbye As the angels carried me into the sky As I turned to look back trying to see I knew that tears would be shed for me
I wouldn't change anything that day When God called me to come His way All fears, doubts, and pains were gone Nothing but happiness as I entered God's home
I looked and saw family and friends grieve for me In everyone’s sad heart I saw special love for me As I was gazing at the family I left behind God promised we would be together once more in time
Cry not for me anymore but only rejoice Before my death I made the right choice I'm in heaven today just where you wanted me Thanks to the prayers that were prayed for me
In due time we will meet again once more I'll be waiting as you enter God's door What a great reunion that will be As we praise God together you and me
