This is my first without her. To all those Mothers out there, your sons and daughters love you more than we can say.

Mother o' Mine

DEDICATION TO "THE LIGHT THAT FAILED"
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!

I am blessed to still have my mother around.

My condolences to you Six, on the loss of your mom in the last year.

Thanks AGirl. Will we ever really understand? Some days I despair.

Thank you Vic303. I hope you have her for many years to come.

Thanks NFO. I struggled with this one but it did seem apropos this day.
