If


by Nabih Saliba

If she should smile,
the Sun would shine and all the world would flourish
for I am hers and she is mine to love, to hold and cherish.

If she should dream,
the sky would ring as all the angels cheer it
then I would sing so I could bring the way that she might hear it.

If she could share,
she’d know we care about the world she lives in
then we could bare our feelings there so she could know where we’ve been.

If she should fear,
she’d stop in fright––the world would shrink and bind her
so I will come to bring a light and in the darkness find her.

If she would cry,
the stars would fall and weigh her soul with sorrow
then I shall peel away the sky and bring about tomorrow.

If she would love,
life opens up––a realm without a border
for then the world makes sense to me, the universe in order.

If I could say
how much she means to me and those around her
then maybe she might step aside and let the world astound her.

We saw each other quite regularly after that until I met my wife a few years later. During the first year of my marriage, I couldn't maintain the affair but would often wonder if I'd ever see her again. It wasn’t until the second year with my wife that I started to rekindle the affair and found that things would go better at home after each encounter. When my son was born, of course, there were a few months when I didn’t make the effort to keep up the affair and lost touch with her entirely. These were dark days of stress and unhappiness. Eventually, I started sneaking her into the house and became less frantic. Looking back, it's a wonder I

A Little About A Lot

A Little About A Lot by Nabih Saliba To know a lot about a little Or a little about a lot Is a thing we should consider But in practice often not Know a lot about a little And it’s one thing that you’ve got But your view might be quite narrow Like a cage for every thought Fill your head with many subjects Then an expert you are not As your knowledge can be shallow When a little about a lot Should you aim to be an expert? Try to master just one thing? Then you’d have yourself a focused Special kind of offering. Do you wish to only sample? Try to gather wide but thin? Then when details are required You’ll just offer up a grin. Maybe what one should consider Isn’t what they know or not But what they know together With the friends that they have got For together we are smarter Sharing fact and view and thought On a lot about a little Or a little about a lot
