This poem shows the fear of losing her mother of the poetess. Her mother is in the last phase of her life. So the poetess feels that she will pass away soon. Poetess gets scared of this thought.

At the airport, they had to undergo a security check. The poetess was standing a few yards away from her mother. She looked again at her old mother. She felt pained to look at the colourless and pale face of her mother. But hiding her tears, the poetess said, “See you soon Amma”.
