One thesis that can apply to the writing of an essay that is an analysis for O. Henry's "The Last Leaf" can be a statement on the power of love.  For, it is the love of Sue and of Mr. Behrman which sustains Johnsy and convinces her to resume her will to live. Indeed, love is a very powerful force that can change the heart of others and provide them with courage.
