An Invisible Bond - a poem

This beautiful poem was sent by dear friends. There wasn't a title, so I took the liberty of calling this "An Invisible Bond". The author is unknown.

You are connected to your child by an invisible bond
Not seen by the eye
It's not like a bond you share with others in our life
This bond can't be seen by any on Earth

This bond does it's work
Right from the start
It seals you together
Attached at the heart

You know that it is there
Though no one can see
The invisible bond
From your child to you

The strength of this bond
Is hard to describe
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied

It is stronger than any bond
Man could create
It withstands the test
As you run this race

And though Josh may be gone
Though he may not be here with you
The bond is still there
But no one can see

It pulls at your heart
Though bruised and sore
But this bond is your lifeline
As never before

That you are connected this way
A mother and father and child
Death can't take it away!!

JoshY I will cherish last summers vacation to Maine in my heart forever. I am so glad we got to go up there together and have a wonderful relaxing week in our little piece of heaven on earth. I will never forget the night we all stayed up laughing all night, when you we on the bunk bed above me listening to techno music and playing around with the flashlight, when you caught your fisrt fish and you didnt know what to do with it, when we both stood on the dock and you couldnt stop giggling. You are in my heart joshy. You will always be my little brother. I love you josh.

love brittany
