I think it depends on how they feel about poetry. Me personally, I would rather a straightfoward explanation on what someone is thinking, and have in the past had problems with fighting the urge to run the other way when someone gave me a poem describing their feelings.
That said, it's a very lovely poem, and you know Eric and Gia best.
