by Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

O you whom I often and silently come
Language: English 
O you whom I often and silently come 
  where you are that I may be with you, 
As I walk by your side or sit near,
  or remain in the same room with you, 
Little you know the subtle electric fire
  that for your sake is playing within me.
