I Do Not Resemble Your Other Lovers – Nizar Qabbani

The Tree Alone Against the World

 

I do not resemble your other lovers, my lady..

Should another give you a cloud I give you rain,

Should he give you a lantern, I will give you a moon,

Should he give you a branch I will give you the trees

And if another gives you a ship I shall give you the journey..
