What was the poet’s childhood fear?

The poet’s childhood fear in the poem, My Mother at Sixty-Six, is that of losing her mother’s company. Through the poem, the poet has tried to depict how the time is nearing. During this her fears will turn into reality, and this makes her feel unhappy and worried at the same time, for her mother has already moved into her old age and is nearing her last days. Her childhood fear appears to grip her again. When the poet sees the corpse-like and pale face of her mother, her ache or the old familiar pain returns. Perhaps this fear was entertained by her since her childhood
