Jag vil leva i Europa

Jan Hammarlund åpnet sin egen vise «Jag vil leve i Europa» 16.juni 2017.

Visas refreng er nå en del av Poesiparken

Jag vill leva i Europa
Jag vill älska och sjunga här!
Jag vill skratta och gråta och dansa
Jag är yr och förlorad och kär!
När jag tänker på hela Europa
Och på oss som hör hemma här!


Footprints in the sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was only one. This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints. So I said to the Lord:

«You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.  But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has  been only one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?»

The Lord replied:

«The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.»

Lev livet langsomt

Folk har for travlt med for mange ting,
og det er en evig skam.
Et liv er en flod, som skal rinde i ro
for å avsætte frugtbart slam.
Der er meget for lidt af ingenting
på alt for manges program.


Er borte

Er borte,
lengter hjem
er hjemme,
lengter bort.
Hjemme, borte,
her, der,
like langt
på stedet hvil.
Underveis finnes
enkelte glimt
av forventning.
