This is what he said:
"I know you"
And he did, and he does
And that's the truth.
But now, I know him too,
And that's the truth,
Because a tall, pale ghost
(with a half smoked cigarette, 
dangling from his lips)
Crept into my room (home)
And whispered in my ear,
"It is safer to be known
Than to know".

Farewell ghost-"I know you."
