SEM is search engine marketing. SEM is any aspect that is used to carry out a PPC campaign utilizing user queries in the search engines. This is more specific to advertising but SEO can tie into a SEM plan because you can obviously use SEO for branding purposes.

SEO is Search Engine Optimization and it refers to the process used to rank pages on the interweb.

So in layman's

SEM - Advertising

SEO - Ranking pages on the web

I think you can get a better idea with this.
SEM : When you advertise your website in search engine results page. For eg. when you Google something you saw ads below the search bar and also right side of the results page. It is called Search Engine Marketing.

SEO : Search Engine Optimization is a technique to promote your website on different different website to make your website popular so that you can get higher position on search engine results page. For eg. when you google something, Google give you no of links related to your query. So to get a position inb those results we do SEO.

Getting free traffic from any search engine is SEO and it's a long term process and If your content is good then you get long term traffic from search engines and SEM is totally paid marketing you pay for search engines to show your websites on top of the organic results.

in my opinion, in Google, SEM = Google Adwords (pay money for Google), SEO = Search Engine Optimization (free money if you do for yourself, do Link building, Social Networks, Submit Links and more).

SEO and SEM both ensures that you get traffic, leads and sales. However, techniques to drive traffic, leads and generate sales in SEM and SEO are different. You market your contents through paid advertising such as Adwords as a part of SEM, where as you add keywords on the contents and build backlinks for SEO purpose.

SEO pertains to all activities in ensuring your website gets on the top list of the results page of a search engine. Focus is more on creating high performing contents that provides value to its market, ensuring proper keywords, title tags are employed to have high search results and attracting more links to your website.

SEM utilizes all ways of promoting the website via SEO and/or paid advertising. Advertisements can come in the form of Pay-To-Click Advertising in selected search engine sites or ad placements in various popular social media sites. Objective is to get priority in the search engine results and achieve maximum exposure.

While SEO takes awhile to pick up, paid advertising gets instant result during the duration of ad placement. They are complementary and used to attract traffic and generate leads necessary to impact the business. SEM takes a broader definition to which SEO is just a part of it.

Search Marketing encompasses:

SEO: Earning traffic through unpaid or free listings
SEM: Buying traffic through paid search listings

Originally called "Search Engine Marketing" the shorter phrase “search marketing” is now often used as the umbrella term over SEO and SEM. The longer phrase "Search Engine Marketing" — or SEM — is now typically used to describe paid search activities.

SEO + PPC = SEM (Search Engine Marketing)

Good luck to you,
