The Most Perfect Prayer - Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Most Perfect Prayer

Quote: G. E. Lessing
Poem: Trina Graves

Prayers are said the world over
In a variety of different ways
Many pleading for assistance
To ease their saddened days

Most are taught as little children
Prayers to say before they sleep
Generations passing down words
Children’s Souls, they aim to keep

For some, prayers are repeated
Words they learned ‘off by heart’
Repetition brings them soothing relief
Releasing thought right from the start

Even those who do not believe
In the existence of a Greater Power
Will ‘pray’ in their own way to receive
Throughout life, a Blessings Shower...

In every conceivable manner the family is a link to our past and a bridge to our future - Alex Hayley - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Family Is A Link To Our Past
And A Bridge To Our Future

Quote Title: Alex Hayley
Poem: Trina Graves

The family is a link to our past
Building treasured memories to last
All through our whole life long
As the generations continue on

We are each born into a time
Being the next in our family line
Our parents very own offspring
To them, the future we will bring

Grandparents told us stories of old
Sometimes tales, bleak and cold
When getting by was truly tough
So we realise, we have enough

But they also loved to tell
Of times they remember, oh so well
With their siblings, mum and dad
And the simple happiness they had...

When they placed you in my arms, you slipped into my heart - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

When They Placed You In My Arms
You Slipped Into My Heart

Quote Title: Unknown Author
Poem: Trina Graves

When they placed you in my arms
For the first time after your birth
Is my most precious memory
Of my life here on this Earth

After endless months of waiting
Anxious that all would be well
Relief mixed with anticipation
As I floated under your spell

My love for you had grown stronger
Each day through pregnancy
In that moment it exploded
Awakening the Core of me...

The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago, the second best time is now - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Best Time To Plant A Tree
Is Twenty Years Ago
The Second Best Time 
Is Now

Quote Title: Unknown Author
Poem: Trina Graves

The best time to plant a tree
Is twenty years ago
To give it the essential time
To develop, bloom and grow

Of course, this isn’t relevant
If you are still a youth
But, I’m sure you can see
This plain and simple truth

Trees are vital to our life
Here on this planet Earth
But do we really appreciate
Our trees, for all their worth?...

While we are sleeping angels have conversations with our souls - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

While We Are Sleeping

Quote Title: Unknown Author
Poem: Trina Graves

While we are sleeping
We let go of physicality
To experience our true form
Of Spirit, unlimited and free
We can go anywhere at all
With no limits of time or space
Explore our magnificent Universe
Or our past-lives we can re-trace

While we are sleeping
The concept of time disappears
Losing all of its boundaries
Only to the physical it adheres
After closing our eyes to sleep
It seems only minutes have gone by
When many hours later we awaken
And adapt to times apparent lie...

Every instant of time is a pinprick of eternity - Marcus Aurelius - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Every Instant Of Time
Is A Pinprick Of Eternity

Quote Title: Marcus Aurelius
Poem: Trina Graves

Time: A simple word that evokes so much
In the modern world it imprints on all we touch
Lives are ruled by the ticking of the clock
Conforming to its pace, we heed the tick-tock

It’s a man-made concept all so easily seen
When twice a year we have to adjust our routine
Changing the clock first forward and then back
Why does it continue? Is it sensibility we lack?..

Give And Take, for to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, for to the flower a bee is a messenger of love.. - Kahlil Gibran - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Give And Take

Quote Title: Kahlil Gibran
Poem: Trina Graves

Give and take - it’s all about the balance
Both are vital, it’s certainly not by chance
That if we favour the one, over the other
Our growth in life, we will then smother

It’s easy to see how people who take always
Are blocking their integrity in selfish ways
Someone who just blindly focuses on self
Will never gain true freedom, or true wealth

Surprisingly though what many do not know
Is focusing on self is actually the way to grow
Seeking our Soul Guidance we become Aware
Of our true selves, then we desire to share...

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses - Joyce Brothers - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

When You Look At Your Life
The Greatest Happinesses
Are Family Happinesses

Quote Title: Joyce Brothers
Poem: Trina Graves

As you get older you more often reflect
The course of your life and you introspect
Remembering all the ups and some downs
The beautiful sights and wonderful sounds

The focus you chose and decisions you made
Became your life and your path was laid
Life continues to expand, there’s always more
To experience the joy is what you came here for

Reminiscing those carefree days of childhood
When all you wanted was to feel good
Playing with siblings, friends or by yourself
Imagination was your greatest wealth...
