Was pouring down so hard that night.
I thought no one would be foolish enough to still come out.
But there you were, lurking in the shadows with a bag in your hand.
You were waiting to get some candy as you came out of the darkness.
I almost screamed but saw it was only a kid with his mom.
Trick or treating in the rain, she made a promise and kept it even though she was miserable.
Maybe next year, she will plan differently so that she and her son can both be happy and warm.
With a couple of chocolates or gummy bears to warm their tastebuds and their tummies as Halloween slowly comes to an end
