The Easiest Thing of All


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.

An affair of convenience

I have a confession to make. I’ve been having an affair now for the past several years. I've known her since we were kids but grew distant in high school. It wasn't until many years later when standing in line at the DMV that I bumped into her again. Having her with me in that line reminded me how much I enjoyed her company. 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

Sound Advice: The Future

I've enjoyed becoming a member of  The Writer's Community on Google+. There, I've found a wonderful group of people in various stages of writing careers. One of them ( Gabriela Gotay ) shared a great post about the playlist she used for inspiration when writing her book, " The Forever Maybe ." This got me thinking about the influence of sound and music on one's writing and I thought I'd begin a series of posts titled, " Sound Advice " that essentially aims to make musical recommendations around a subject or genre of writing. The posts will provide links to the music on Amazon and brief commentary on what imagery or concepts the music conjures in my mind. Hopefully there's something that sparks the imagination along the way. Today's Sound Advice  is going to tackle "The Future." Whether this is a utopian, dystopian, near, far, alternate or projected future may influence certain aspects of the following list but all tracks e

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 If a lot about a little Then an expert you will be Of the few things you have studied Or have done repeatedly Should you choose a lighter focus For the things that you can learn Then your interests will be wider With all details no concern If an expert on a subject Or someone who knows a lot Be it narrow or unfocused Make the most of what you’ve got In the end it only matters If you help your fellow man Use what knowledge you’ve been given To help us be the best we can To know a lot about a little Or a little about a lot Is not the thing that matters But in practice means a lot.
