All of us are deeply attached to our parents. We grow up watching them strong and powerful. Slowly, we see them ageing when we are growing. There is always a sudden realisation of their appearance which changes with time.
The poet is deeply saddened by her ageing mother and her likeness to someone who is nearing death. The fear of realising this is universal because as human beings the modes of our attachments are universal.
