I ate with you, and slept with you
– your body has become not yours only,
nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes, face, flesh, as we pass
– you take of my beard, breast, hands, in return,
I am not to speak to you–
I am to think of you when I sit alone,
or wake at night alone,
I am to wait –
I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.
“To a Stranger” - Walt Whitman
