Poetry by Noel Smith

They wander aimless, lost it seems,
In private thought and secret dreams,
Duty bound to things that prompt them on.
Things that we who watch can't know,
Things that germinate and grow
Within the brain when normal mind has gone.

Treasured moments, stored for years,
Love and hate, joy and tears,
Things that lived secure, held from the past.
All jumbled now, all gone away,
Briefly seen, they cannot stay.
Mem'ries flashed subconscious, will not last.
