Although i might but completely wrong, i will go with my instincts on this
one. It is undoubtly a poem about an elderly woman; who might have been
blind and/ or partly immobile. It seems to take on the theme of loneliness
and a sort of longing. Loneliness in the sense that she wonders where her
kids, who are all grown up, are doing with their lives. Longing in the
sense of her memories of her fathers morning routine. One can also make the
case that she may be plague by some form of dementia as she seem unable to
remember the events of the previous days (secondary memory).
