Here's a simple poem, what is it about?

The poems I used to write were slightly more complex and I didn't care much about the way they sounded or rhymed. This is my first attempt with something simple, after years of artistical inactivity. There's a lady down the street I sometimes get to see. I get to see her every day, but she often walks away. She carries a sack of candies but I've never tasted any. I saw some people eating them but they never told me how they were! Then a man came and said if you want one you have to pay. Now I collect pennies on the street, oh candy lady, one day we'll have to meet. So, what is this poem about? It's very easy, it's a common subject in art. @moffittjc got it right, the subject was "death". Then feel free to tell me what you think about it, this is probably the first and last poem I'll post here.

No one asked, so I was quiet. Right, it can be found in written, visual, auditive art. Also in dancing. For a few people in cooking too, but I'm afraid that could be misleading for some. And it's a common topic for philosophers as well.

@sabtraversa I'm still thinking, quite diffucult. BTW what do we get if we guess it right? free all expense paid trip to Italy would be just fine wait, philosophers like logic and all arts have logic but it's not eaten, am i close? Is it tangible or intangible?

The first ones are the scariest. I like it as you can tell it is not fake or just a gimmick. I have written maybe three poems and maybe a couple more if you count nonsense. Meaning I just kind of spout things awkwardly, but always did get more responses than I thought. I always say that is the last one also but get in weird moods and just feel like writing one.
