The Last Leaf by Oliver Wendell Holmes.


The story portrays a lonely old man as he outlives his generation.  The old man was just waiting for his life to end because he thinks that there is no point in living because he was all alone.


The old man is portrayed as a lonely leaf as it is just waiting to fall because all of the other leaves have already fallen.


If I were in his position, I would do the same thing. Because, it’s so very lonely =)). I would not stand the loneliness of the world and I would just let time fly. :>
