Light Is More Important Than The Lantern

by Nizar Qabbani

Light is more important than the lantern,
The poem more important than the notebook,
And the kiss more important than the lips.
My letters to you
Are greater and more important than the both of us.
They are the only documents
Where people will discover
Your beauty
And my madness.

I'm a retired journalist who still has stories to tell. This seems to be a good place to tell them.
