Two Souls On The Shore - Poem by Noreen Carden

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

A woman now i search your eyes
Our hearts stand face to face
and cannot lie
Knowing if we part and meet no more
Our souls will kiss forever on this shore

    This is such a lovely and tender poem I almost feel like my clumsy words will spoil the spell it casts. And that is the best word for the effect - a spell, which temporarily lifts a veil from our eyes and instead of seeing the world as it is we can see the world as it should be, or should have been. A first love, yes, it both hurts and heals to think back on those events. But our hearts will be broken by life, at least these memories fill the heart with a happiness just out of reach but still very real. I'm saving this poem too. (Report) Reply

    Noreen, although i don't care much for love poems, as you may read in my poem:

    [[ I Don't Care Much For Love Poems...[Love; Marriage; Personal; Romance] ]]

    i have decided to give this one a whirl.
    AND because i like to be helpful to other poets [some might say i'm a pain in the arse], i have taken the liberty to put some comments, in brackets, in between the lines of your poem, as follows:


    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

    [i like the first stanza, BUT I THINK YOU 'WANT' as between once and a. otherwise a reader may think you once walked a child, kind of like walking a dog, along the beach, whereas i believe you mean that you walked there when YOU were a child. hmmm? ]

    A woman now i search your eyes
    Our hearts stand face to face
    and cannot lie
    Knowing if we part and meet no more
    Our soul s will kiss forever on this shore

    [did you mean the 2nd and 3rd lines to be separate lines or did you or poemhunter make them separate when you meant them to be ONE? ? i'll go either way, but i prefer combining them; it makes the rhyming smoother for one thing. yeah, thanks for the rhymes. :)
    AND i think you want souls, not soul s. yes? , my friend.

    like i said, i don't like love poems [maybe that's why i've been divorced three times? ? (ha ha) ] but this one is okay. thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply

    This is an absolute beauty! The note is as sweet and innocent as the memory of the first love. This reminds me of mine.

    So romantic with deep desires connecting along the sea shore, with their love forever locked within their souls.

    A romantic setting for the lovers to meet! Like the sea, their hearts are also turbulent with emotions! Though they are not sure if they would meet again, they are sure about onething that the sea will remain a mute witness to their love! Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply

    This is so charming and delightful. The seashore has a very
    soothing effect. The calm lapping of the waves against the
    reefs provides a beautiful setting. Especially for love and
    and romance. (Report) Reply
