And until death I carry on till the last leaf shall fall from the tree. Well I came to Jesus as you are weary alone and sad. I found in him a resting place and he has made made me glad. Oh keys of kings take hold on me let me teach Thy love for Thee. Can't you feel his love pleading with your heart oh give Thy soul to me. Oh shine your light let your sad heart seem live up Thy voice with he. His love will guide you to his arms when the last leaf shall fall from the tree.

Sue tells Behrman that Johnsy is deathly ill from pneumonia. She adds that Johnsy has given up and declares she will die when the last leaf falls form the vine outside the window she is looking through. Behrman claims that Johnsy's sentiments are pure nonsense: Old Behrman, with his red eyes plainly streaming, shouted his contempt and derision for such idiotic imaginings. In the cold, icy rain, Behrman spends the night painting a masterpiece. He paints one last leaf on the vine. Now, Johnsy will not give up and die. Sadly, Behrman catches pneumonia from painting in the icy rain.
The Last Leaf takes place in Greenwich Village, a bohemian neighborhood in New York City, sometime in the early 20th century. The narrator remarks that the labyrinthine, winding streets of the neighborhood make it an ideal home for artists, since debt collectors find the area difficult to navigate. Greenwich Village is a haven for poor artists and bohemian young people, and O. Henry depicts a vibrant creative community. When the last leaf falls to the ground, Johnsy asserts, she will die. Sue tells Johnsy that she’s being silly and that the doctor has given her a good chance of recovery (which is a lie). Johnsy says that she wants to turn loose my hold on everything, and go sailing down, down, just like one of those poor, tired leaves.
The Last Leaf’, a marvelous story by O. Henry, depicts the treasury of life and the inevitability of faith to tackle the hindrances we battle through our life. The value of the life is the cynosure of the story where all things go back and revolve around it. The sequence of events is smoothly carved in with the supporting details. I subtract 50 percent from the curative power of medicines. If you will get her to ask one question about the new writer styles in cloak sleeves I will promise you one-in-five chance for her, instead of. So O’ Henry conveys message one never let go for hope and optimist approach in life. It is our state of mind which can bring worse or better for us in our lives.

New American Standard Bible Surely, thus says the LORD, "Even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away, And the prey of the tyrant will be rescued; For I will contend with the one who contends with you, And I will save your sons. King James Bible But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. Contemporary English Version But the LORD has promised to fight on our side and to rescue our children from those strong and violent enemies. International Standard Version But this is what the LORD says: "He will seize even the warriors' plunder, and the captives of tyrants will be rescued.
It will fall today and I shall die at the same time. Dear, dear!" said Sue, leaning her worn face down toward the bed. "Think of me, if you won't think of yourself. And look out the window, dear, at the last ivy leaf on the wall. Didn't you wonder why it never moved when the wind blew?
