Halloween Night

Halloween night always makes me
wish I could turn the clock back
Maybe I feel young on Halloween night
Opening the door and seeing a young child
Holding out their trick or treat sack?

Halloween nights leave too soon
I wish they could stay with us a while
Joy on children's face I love to see
They leave memories hard to forget
I feel younger when children smile.

I bet many of you enjoy Halloween too
Going to the store buying colorful sweets
Then waiting for darkness to creep in
Then waiting for goblins to appear
Halloween nights are hard to beat.
