)What was the poet's childhood fear?
The poet's childhood fear was that someday she would lose her mother. She had fear of being separated from her mother and not being able to see her, like all other children. While she was sitting behind her mother in the car and looking at her pale face, she could see her childhood fear turning into reality. She could sense that she might not be able to see her mother alive on her next visit. Therefore, she stood silently at the airport waving to her mother without uttering a word. Her only desire was to see her soon in proper health.
