He is the perfect guest,
who will not stay too long,
looking for easy rest
just inside my mind.
Said to be soft-spoken,
he's not well understood.
Ignoring the speeding clock,
I'm told he's a force for good.
Friends have seen him coming
before the day began,
most still watch him closely
some will take his hand.
When I'm finally ready,
he enters through my door,
he will stop tonight
a thousand times or more.
