O You Whom I Often And Silently Come


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.

by Walt Whitman

This is a beautiful poem, expressing power of love, the longing desires of one's heart, and the indescribable 'fire' we feel when with the one we love.
The poem is about love and the electric fire is the attraction between people, i liked the poem
When I first read this poem i thought it was talking about the 'unknown' or being invisible but once i read it more, i realized they may be talking about actual fire
