Halloween Dream

Updated on October 10, 2018

Closed all my doors and locked them tight,

Was too many visitors on Halloween night.

Went to bed just about nine on that evening,

A big old full moon by my window was bright.


Knock after a knock on my wooden front door,

I refused to move, staying put began to snore.

It was then my dream took my thoughts away,

Was darker than night, as trees began to sway.


Refrain:

"Trick-or-treat", I heard, as I was trying to sleep,

Next thing you know I was in and way too deep.

It was Dreamtime that took my free spirit away,

I was flying through the air, all spooks on display.



Goblins on my left side, and ghosties to my right,

All Hallows' Eve now took on a new kind of fright.

Below I saw a graveyard, tombstones everyplace,

Spirits rose and fell, disappeared without a trace.


A creepy looking house sat on the hillside far away,

Bats were flying all about, as a jack-o-lantern did say:

"Welcome to our world of horror, now you must stay,

You are a member of our band, now it's time to play."


Refrain:

"Trick-or-treat", I heard, as I was trying to sleep,

Next thing you know I was in and way too deep.

It was Dreamtime that took my free spirit away,

I was flying through the air, all spooks on display.


Then as I was busy rubbing the sleep from my eyes,

I saw a sight that scared me good, was a big surprise.

A black-hatted witch woman flew around on a broom,

Made me feel just like this was the night of my doom.


She screeched and hollered loud, the wind in her hair,

Was all I could to see this sight, she seemed on a tear,

I tried to duck, hide behind a tree, but was then too late,

Was time to face the music, accept my own worst fate.


Refrain:

Trick-or-treat", I heard as I awakened from my sleep,

Next thing you know, I landed by my bed in a heap.

Dreamtime had brought me back, my spirit was free,

All those spooks had flown away, no more did I see.


It just goes to show you, never take all that fun away,

Halloween only comes just once a year, is here to stay.

Give those kids a happy night to dress up, to pretend,

Those ghouls and goblins are watching you, my friend.
