Noreen Carden Poems
Heart and soul revised
A heart can break without a sound. A tear can fall to hit the ground. No one standing near can tell. There's not a sign to break the spell.
Life A Journey
I am born. My own clean sheet. My road in life is incomplete. I start my journey baby steps
The Person We See
Grey wispy hair pokes through her hat Waddling homeward on worn down heels Carrying bags that hit and bump on legs as they hurry through city streets
Harvest moon hanging high Watching us Gods ancient eye Poets write you distant cold While i observe your core
Children Of War
Thunderous noises screaming guns. Fires raging evil done. Abject terror written plain. On baby faces For shame. For shame.
Goodbye My Son
The wire you ordered came today. I stacked it by the garden gate. Standing under the arc of a rainbow. In your big raincoat snuggled safe.
Used T o Be
I go deep to search your eyes. Icy cold is what I see. I reach out in search of love. Indifference touches me.
Bye Bye Baby
With head bent low he watches her go, bravely facing a world she does not know He smiles goodbye and covers up his tears for he must be brave if she looks back in fear.
Heart of ice
Black day when ice formed round her heart. Black day when they were forced to part. Her anger made her rail at God. What did she do that was so bad.
Rosie walks down by the river bank flowers in her hair, Stars in her eyes She dreams of the day that will soon come to pass A sweet secret she held in her heart
Walking in the starry darkness. I seek a quiet place of peace. Breath blows white against the air. Mind searches a forgotten prayer.
Two Souls On The Shore
Reach out your hand to me my love and bid me walk with you awhile Along this sandy moonlit shore. Where i walked once a child
Vision In The Night revised
Deep into the night she awakes sensing his presence A quiet pensive aura about him She is aware of his confusion at being in unfamiliar surroundings lost in a world of strange sights and sounds
The Night Of The Star
On the night of the star, gifts lain at his feet. He comes into being. Annunciation complete.

Heart and soul revised
A heart can break without a sound.
A tear can fall to hit the ground.
No one standing near can tell.
There's not a sign to break the spell.
A soul can shatter separate.
still leave the body standing straight.
The outer shell can smile and talk.
While the soul is on its lonely walk.
Bereft of light and peace it flies
Its quest to reach towards the sky.
Blackness holds it fast in space.
Forever locked in time and place.
Just one touch of human hand
can raise that soul to reach for light
Then mend the heart its hope revive.
To lift its wing's to ...
