This place

There is this place
well lit in the tunnel.
It says you're special
and should continue.
Like a mother
who tells you to behave
on the first day of school
the walls guide you towards light.
There is no turning back.

Lights will soon be switched off
but a dream
of their warm touch will continue.

Love the comparison with mother's advice/warning.
I read it as- the way you cannot turn back from school, even after mom's touch is not there anymore, you also cannot turn back in the tunnel after lights have been switched off- feeling of both lingers on though. :)
What was your thought while writing?

Your reading is correct. On dot. Exact.

My thought was about the absence or loss of anyone. More importantly parents or the people who guide us.
