POEMS: “While We Are Sleeping” by Trina Graves


“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

While we are sleeping
The door is open wide
To step through and appreciate
The world on the other side
Our Spirit leaves our body
Resting peacefully in our bed
We’re attached by a silver cord
It only breaks when we are dead

While we are sleeping
Our true self guides the way
We regain our pure perspective
And digest the current day
Although plentiful things transpire
Remembering only happens to a few
But just because we have forgotten
Doesn’t mean it isn’t true

While they are sleeping
Those nearing their life’s end
Are making preparations
To more easily comprehend
The letting go of this world
And moving on to better things
They are more likely to remember
The messages ‘sleeping’ brings

While we are sleeping
We can visit those we love
Here, or those departed
Transitioned to the Above
Sometimes we can recall
A ‘dream’ of those who’ve died
Our love unites us forever
Meeting eases tears we’ve cried

While we are sleeping
Some give assistance in many ways
Helping others make their transition
At the ending of their days
Or being with someone who’s down
Needing an uplifting smile that’s all
We are all linked together
Supporting each other forevermore

While they are sleeping
Babies bask in Spirituality
New to physical restrictions
Their Souls requisite to be free
Growing so fast requires sleep
As their minds and bodies change
Over years time works its wonders
And sleeping patterns rearrange

While we are sleeping
Our body’s cells all adjust
Unhindered by limiting thoughts
It’s why sleeping is a must
Our bodies can miraculously heal
And sleep plays a crucial part
In recovery from disease or wounds
To mind, body and emotional heart

While we are sleeping
We connect to our Higher-Self
And can take the opportunity
To assess our abundant wealth
In the multiple aspects of life
Our goal is to constantly do our best
Our Higher-Self knows the plan
Enlightening us when we’re at rest

While we are sleeping
Our Guides are always there
To support and give assistance
Because they truly care
They chose to be with us
For our life here on this Earth
Always giving loving guidance
Before and since our birth

While we are sleeping
Heavenly Angels gather around
Pure, Divine Beings of Light
To us mortals they are bound
Giving constant unconditional love
Helping us reach our goals
So, while we are sleeping
Angels have conversations with our Souls

    Well, thank you for sharing this again Amira. 🙂 Was that on purpose? (you shared it on the 16th) If by accident, perhaps someone needs to see it today that might have missed it before.. everything happens for a reason! ❤
    Love, Light & Blessings ❤


    1. Yes, dear Trina: I don’t know what happened but I read the poem again “with fresh eyes” and it suddenly had new meanings, like at another level, I thought maybe others might also find something new in it again… even though the 2 posts are so close together (maybe I should have waited some more time) but like you said I just went with the flow 🙂 I used a different picture, trying to reflect that change in perspective.
      I guess sometimes it’s worth taking a second look 🙂
      Sending love and light to you my dear friend for the ongoing inspiration! ❤

        That’s really interesting, I think it’s wonderful that you found new meanings with re-reading. I suppose too, that some of my longer poems do have a lot to take in on first glance. The image you’ve chosen is perfect for this poem, you always seem to be able to find just the right ones! Love & Light to you too. ❤


        1. As a matter of fact, this has been so far, the most highly read post today! Wow!!! 🙂

        2. Thank you! I am so pleased that you like the pictures because I imagine that you may have your own take on your poems, and it could be quite different from the images I try to find for each poem.

            I think we are so aligned that they are a perfect match every time, whether it’s the poem or the picture chosen first! (as we’ve discovered!) ❤

    1. Thank you so much for saying this Linda, it confirms my feeling about posting this poem again. That is awesome that you can remember those dreams. They bring us messages from beyond, and as you said can bring us so much peace and comfort. Sending love and light your way, a big hug, Amira ❤
