Homage to a Leaf

A leaf fell upon my car.
I drove it days near and far.
It turned from green to yellow.
Then brown to crusty mellow.

In truth, it kept me, company.
I welcomed its tenacity.
For each day it stuck hard and fast.
Until it fell one day at last

It left me, on a sunny day.
And I miss its tenacious stay.
I grieve its consequential end,
To me I homage it a friend.

What a wonderful homage. You took something very simple and brought life into it, gave it a personality. I absolutely love the feelings inspired by the lines:
"I welcomed its tenacity.
For each day it stuck hard and fast."

Beautifully written!!
