Mother o’ Mine

Rudyard Kipling (1891)

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, 0 mother o’ mine!
(This is the dedication to Kipling’s novel, The Light That Failed.)
