My mother’s eyes stay behind
 follow me where I go.

Overtake and come in front
 when I talk to strangers.

The eyes give instructions,
twinkle when I speak right,

stare when I go wrong.
cast down when I fail,

caution when I am about
to pronounce something important.

They retreat when I am finished, walk
with me till I reach the destination.
