Shine a little light

Shine a little light.

I have often seen your face.

It tells me more than Words can do.

I have so much to say to you.

But how can I give my Words to you.

You never look my way anymore.

But still in spite of everything.

I am here and I want you to know that you can call me day and night.

I’ll wait and even in the darkest of times shine a little light.

 

You have often seen my face.

It tells you more than Words can do.

You don’t have many Words for me.

But how can you give your Words to me now.

Your eyes never look my way anymore.

But still in spite of everything.

I am here and I want you to know that you can call me day and night.

I’ll wait and even in the darkest of times shine a little light.

 

I have often seen you cry.

It tells me more than Words can do.

I have so much to give to you.

But how can I give it to you now.

You don’t want anything I can give to you anymore.

But still in spite of everything.

I am here and I want you to know that you can call me day and night.

I’ll wait and even in the darkest of times shine a little light.

 

You have not often seen me cry.

It must tell you more than Words can do.

You have nothing to give to me.

But how can I live without it now.

You don’t have anything to give to me anymore.

But still in spite of everything.

I am here and I want you to know that you can call me day and night.

I’ll wait and even in the darkest of times shine a little light.

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

    The words of , ” Shine a little light ” , convey an ineffable poignancy and vulnerability that immediately reminded me of the lyrics of those great American singer-songwriters who flourished in the early 1970’s; Jim Croce,James Taylor, Neil Diamond, Kris Kristofferson etc. “Shine a little light ” really is that good.
