Have you ever seen a leaf fall
From the bearing trees?
With gentle grace
As it takes its time to soar
Cutting through the crisp autumn breeze
Swiftly swaying side to side
With no destination in mind
Can people take that much time
And be that free
To say they've seen a leaf fall
Just wait and stand in peace
For just one moment and stare
As it proudly reaches its destination
Finally hitting the colorful ground

I like the line "can people take that much time" because at that point the poem takes on a new meaning. You expressed the image well.
