Mother o’ Mine

Tuesday, 28 January, 2014

This poem/prayer by Rudyard Kipling is dedicated to the Rainy Day mother who is recuperating currently.

Mother o’ Mine

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!

Rudyard Kipling (1865 — 1936)

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me,” said Abraham Lincoln. “They have clung to me all my life.” It’s the same here.
