We Were Together

We were together; I forget the rest.

-- Walt Whitman (1819-1892), American journalist and poet

The line above, which I really like, appears to be a condensed version of the following line from Whitman's "Once I pass'd Through a Populous City", from "Leaves of Grass" (1855)

Day by day and night by night we were together -- all else has long been forgotten by me.
