Saw a man taking a sign off the fence.
Ya a pile left.
Was a house in need of repair.
It was all decorated and lit up for Halloween.
On the side, a pile of pumpkins I did see, all sizes.
We walked to them. He said take your pick.
I looked and could not make up my mind which one.
Said, you pick one out for me, so he looked.
He said, Here You are, it's a nice shaped one.
Asked how much and offered to pay.
He said no way.
You carry it, so may I offer it as I know
You are new in town. I saw you move in.
Stopped at the right house, and I said Thank You
Put the pumpkin down on the porch and come in.
Have coffee and cake and chat awhile.
Time ticked away and I said I better go now.
He said come tomorrow, help me carve a pumpkin.
He said it was a fun time,
Fun he had not had in a long time.
Got to know one another and a hug I gave.
Out of pocket, a candle he gave to me.
Became close friends and had times together.
Me and my man from Dead End Road...Forever.
A HAPPY THANKSGIVING, with hugs and love.
