I owe it to you.

When I go a star slowly fades away into darkness.

You will become a new and another better you,

and never lose your mind or being held in fear.

You will see the stars reappear, oh see the flares.

You will not feel the cost of the pain, oh no at all,

because someday I have to realize what I gave might be so wrong.

You’re better off being there beside honor and truth,

so let me just go, let my footsteps evaporate.

Under all this, is what I see and what I did by myself.

The gift I have, I shall no longer carry.

Underneath all that was, I should never get in the way of you again.

The gift I had should never unfold again and only a silence will fill you up now.

When I’m gone, my star fades away and burn out.

So you have to find yourself a new one in heaven.

You will not get more words and no more tears,

be contemt in where you should sail, oh so lonely on your trail..

You no longer need to cry about what you lost, oh no at all.

Someday you wake up happy and thank me for being away.

You just need to be strong until I’m completely gone.

Underneath all that lies here, is what I did and probably still is acounted for.

The gift I got from it, I have to bear forever and thank you.

Underneath all what’s left of me now,

you will  see the way is free and unobstructed for you.

The gift I have, I still can’t divulge but just let it talk loudly now,

I know how ambiguously it all appear but I owe it to you.

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
