Coute que coute(Cost What It May)


Because I feel that, in the Heaven’s above,
The Angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None as devotional as that of “Mother”,
Therefore by that clear name I’ve called you,

You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you.

In setting my patriotic spirit free.
My mother—my own mother, who died early;
Was but the mother of myself; But you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
By that infinity with which my strife
Was hated by my soul with its soul-life.

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Poetry is Beauty in its clearest form. This really shows that. ;,)

Dream as if you'll live forever, love like there is no tomorrow, dance like there is no one watching.

This vocabulary, and overall format is way above my level, but i can tell it's beautifully written, and if it's a true story, i'm sorry for your loss! great poem, keep writing :)
