The author said that she appreciated the mother worrying about her child's well-being during her life. The author said that she, the child, often worried about the mother as well while the mother was alive. The child says that she does not have direction in life without the mother, but she goes on to say that she knows the mother continues to look out for her daughter even after the mother's death.
In the poem "Mother," the child comments that mother never appeared to grow old to the daughter. The daughter compares the mother's smile to sunshine and the mother's heart to gold.
