The Light
By Nabih Saliba

I light the path for all to see
They shall not trip because of me
How great I am that darkness flee
I do all this without a fee

And so it went each night for lamp
Who proudly thought itself a champ
But then one evening came a tramp
His clothes were worn, and torn, and damp

He staggered left, he stumbled right
He should not try to walk at night
The drunkard tripped and fell into the light
Thrown from the lamp with disdain bright

Why should I help this man below?
He’s far beneath me don’t you know
His lesser breeding clearly show
This beggar can’t deserve my glow

And so the lamp let darkness fall
On he who lay there in a ball
As shadows grew both thin and tall
The lamp stood off for one and all

Then suddenly the night time fled
As from each corner more light bled
The lamp looked ‘round and scratched its head
Who brings such light? It loudly said

“Your humble servant,” in reply
Don’t mind me up in the sky
I’m moving on, just passing by
Just sharing light, at least I try

The lamp felt small for what it’d done
The poor soul it had tried to shun
When light as mighty as the Sun

Was freely shared with everyone

The Easiest Thing of All
By Nabih Saliba

It’s easy to remember the first time I laid eyes on you
Every day, your beauty still takes my breath away

It’s easy to admire what you’re capable of
Every day, you demonstrate your capacity for greatness

It’s easy to be jealous of the time that isn’t mine
Every day, I see the care you invest in others

It’s easy to be proud of you
Every day, you push a little further into the unknown

It’s easy to think of you
Every day, you occupy my thoughts, dreams and desires

It’s easy to wait for you
Every day, I look forward to discovering new things with you

It’s easy to imagine the rest of my life with you
Every day, you remind me of what a joy living can be

It’s easy for me to thank you
Every day, you brighten my life

In every moment I remember you
In every moment I admire you
In every moment I feel jealous
In every moment I think of you
In every moment I wait for you
In every moment I imagine with you
In every thing I thank you for

The easiest thing of all

Is to love you.
