Ok, I see the words, but I still don't really get it. I guess I don't see the connection between a falling
leaf and loneliness. I like falling leaves.Fill me in. (I'm not a poetry person.)

Falling leaves are beautiful, that's not the point. I think you are supposed to "see" A falling leaf. Not leaves. Just one. Watch it all the way to the ground. One, single, solitary leaf.
