That one knows me!

Among the men and women, the multitude,  
I perceive one picking me out by secret and divine signs,    
Acknowledging none else—not parent, wife, husband, brother, child,      
any nearer than I am;   
 Some are baffled—But that one is not—that one knows me.        
Ah, lover and perfect equal! 
I meant that you should discover me so, by my faint indirections;    
And I, when I meet you, mean to discover you by the like in you.

- Among the Multitude, by Walt Whitman -
