Mother O' Mine Poem by Rudyard Kipling

Mother O' Mine

Rating: 3.2


If I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!

Absolutely awesome, isn't it? Mothers do feel that way about their children- nothing stops them from loving. So it shouldn't surprise anyone that the mothers on this site love this poem. 10++++++++++++++++++ of course.
