A Red Thread Poem

I felt the piercing of my heart

As the master pulled through the thread.

The pain was deep, a longing tug.

This tightening string of red.

A thread unseen by human eyes,

But felt deep inside the heart.

It’s path was long as it made it’s way

To my daughter who lived afar.

And gently while you slept,

He tied this string to you,

Connecting you forever,

Into a family you never knew.

I feel your string’s pull of dreams & hopes,

As I follow our thin red line

Knowing soon you’ll be in your new family’s arms,

As our life threads of love intertwine.
