Thoughts about poem dead husband?
It's not my husband, a co worker of mine lost her husband and she really loves poetry so I thought it might be nice to give her a poem of mine but I want to know what you guys think before I decide whether or not to give it to her.
I know this is a little conceited, but please give it a star if you like it, in this section I'd be lucky to get 2 comments and I really want to know what you think about this.
The Autumn Leaf
Day by day the autumn leaves turn
The driest brown before the fall
And one by one the autumn leaves learn
That none escape the winter's call
For many fall alone and bare
For fate has made the cruelest crime
Forced to wait until they tear
Forced to wait the sands of time
But leaves are not for solemn brown
But golden yellow and ruby red
And heavy is this nature's crown
But carried high upon one's head
And to the winds the leaves will blow
Scattering forth the ash of life
And flowers, trees, and plants will know
Two leaves lay hands as man and wife

I like your poem, a lot actually, I just think maybe it is a little dark for the occasion. When death comes, one must celebrate the life lost.
