POEMS: “Before We Were Born” by Trina Graves

“Before We Were Born”


Before we were both born
We lived in a beautiful place
So different from this world we know
With no limits of time and space

We didn’t need a body
To contain our energy
We were free to explore ourselves
In any way we’d like to be

We were just the same back then
Not a child and their parent
We were Beings of Love and Light
Both powerful and magnificent

We had shared many lives before this one
It’s so much fun to change things around
You’ve been my brother, sister, parent, friend
The different ways to be, that we had found

For this life that we are in now
We talked about what we would like to do
We were ready to remember who we really are
And live our lives bringing spiritual love through

We knew that this would be quite difficult
In a world of limits, near and far
Our goal would be to become Awake
To the truth of who we really are

This time you chose me to be your parent
To love, guide you and help you see
The wonderful, powerful person you are
Creating your world with love energy

From you my child I would learn so much
About unconditional love
You came into my life to teach me
As an angel sent from up above

I only want what is best for you
But sometimes I can make a mistake
Like you I am learning to do my best
Together we will Awake

      Thank you very much Linda. As a child I remember wondering about where we were before we were born, so when I decided to write some poems for children it was obviously a question I wanted to answer. People often talk about life after death, but not so much about life before birth, whenever I tell my grandchildren they were in Heaven watching and waiting it always puts a smile on their faces. 🙂
      Love, Light & Blessings to you too. ❤


      1. At one point a few years back, I thought of a title for a book “Where were you before you were born?” Like, you, I also felt that not many talk about what happens before we are born, and this is a source of great interest to me, I am so glad you wrote this poem!!!

          Thank you Amira. We are so interested in the same things 🙂 They say ‘great minds think alike’ lol, but we know it’s the law of attraction working in our lives that has brought us together to co-create. 🙂 ❤


          1. Yes, it is amazing the similarities in all the topics of interest, Wow! For sure, dear Trina, this cannot just be a simple “coincidence”…
