Knock At The Door

I turn on the lights there's a knock at the door.
I proceed to the door to look through the  peephole. 
It's 4 am in the morning, and I am not home. How does
this person know that no one is home.  I've  worked so hard
not to answer the door.  I  am reluctant to look through the peephole. 
But I look and I see someone that I think I know.

I see someone I hope to know. 
I see someone I should know.
I see someone I would like to know.
I see someone maybe, I've seen before

But again, how does this person know that I am not home.

I am not home, the store is closed
I 'm alone, I am gone, it's been very long

I will not open the door, I just can't trust what I do not know.
But I'm getting better though, because this time I made it to the door and I 
even looked through the peephole.  

Next time I will trust in the Lord, I will open the door.
