I forget the rest, a poem

Hey Hart Beat. I’ve been going through a lot of old tumblr and blog posts the last couple of days and I keep finding these miscellaneous quotes. Often time I love the saying so much I want to share it with you immediately here but when I go to find the source it’s often misquoted or attributed to the wrong person. This Walt Whitman quote is just the case. “We were together. I forgot the rest.” What a great line, unfortunately/ fortunately the poem bellow is where the tumblr image originally came from. Either way I love the sentiment and I hope you do too, Hart Beat.

Once I Pass’d Through a Populous City
by Walt Whitman

Once I pass’d through a populous city imprinting my brain for future
use with its shows, architecture, customs, traditions,
Yet now of all that city I remember only a woman I casually met
there who detain’d me for love of me,
Day by day and night by night we were together—all else has long
been forgotten by me,
I remember I say only that woman who passionately clung to me,
Again we wander, we love, we separate again,
Again she holds me by the hand, I must not go,
I see her close beside me with silent lips sad and tremulous.

    I love that! What a lovely sentiment, regardless of to whom the quote is attributed! What a treat to read this poem by Walt Whitman. I hope you’re having a great day, with lots of sunshine and happiness!

    Thanks for this Hannah. Just got the short quote engraved on the inside of my fiance’s ring. Love the simplicity of it! Great to know where this comes from.

    My wife passed away on 23 January 2017 due to complications from Multiple Sclerosis. She was 38 years old.

      George, you have my sympathy at your wife’s passing. Just found this post while searching for the quote and saw your comment.
