Closest companion

entry picture


Sometimes this fellow follows,
sometimes he leads my way.
At times my closest companion
can still seem quite far away.

I don't doubt he's a dapper dresser,
he's oft spotted sporting a hat,
'though his figure frequently fluctuates
from tall and wiry, down to small and fat.

He is easily seen by moonlight
'though his profile is lower at noon,
and I've known him to get completely lost
within one darkened room.

But I trust I'll always find him
towering once more at dawn,
while at my end he'll lie beneath me again
just as he did, back when I was new born.
