I wasn't about ghost goblins or Ghouls
I thought Halloween was for kids and fools
Then one October much to my surprise
I watched from a gravesite a spirit rise
He came towards me my body just froze.
He flowed into my mouth down to my toes.
I could hear his voice from inside my head
He said this is the evening of the undead
Just Twenty-Four hours to meet his love
Heading to lovers point high up above
Many years ago, he jumped to Death
Distraught by the loss of sweet Mary Beth
I could not resist we went where he went
Towards a beauty a gift heaven sent
Long auburn hair and a pretty smile
So very close yet more than a mile
My heart started beating, sweat on my brow
His feelings of passion my mind cried out wow
Before I could touch her he went his way
They flew off together their time to play
Happy Halloween to Lovers.
