Death
does not
release the bonds,
or lessen
the strength of
emotions experienced
at birth. 

God’s plan
for claiming His own
has no
rhyme or reason
in the minds
and hearts
of mere mortals. 

Once connected
Always
One

How easy to take the suggested title from the final words of the previous poem, “experience a mother’s love” and immediately hone in on the eternal connection between mother and baby as the topic. No matter the age of the child, from prenatal to old age, one never loses the comfort of the strong tie symbolized by the life-giving umbilical cord of the womb. 

As the child matures, strong bonds are formed with other relatives and friends, also. This poem as easily highlights ties with a lifetime friend, a lover, a marriage partner. Regardless of the relationship, when God chooses to bring a member of His family home, the pain of loss for those left behind still creates an emptiness that appears to have no rhyme or reason. 

For those struggling with the loss of a loved one, regardless of the amount of time that has passed, always remember that with hearts, minds, and souls:

Once connected

Always

One
