RHYMES AND REASONS
My First Poem to My First Grandchild
Dedicated to Imogen Isobel Anderson

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
January 13, 2017

I'm imagining, wee Imogen,
how you will touch our lives
with images of how much we are loved
by a Father we have never seen
who demonstrates His care
through daily mercies we're most needful of.

Precious Imogen, your Papou
is ecstatic with delight
as I contemplate the moments we will share.
Those dimples that define your face
remind me of your mom
who grew up way too fast with years to spare.

And so I pledge, granddaughter dear,
to cherish every day
the Lord allows me to be here with you.
I want to be a means of grace
by which your faith will grow
before my days on earth are finally through.

*Little Imogen was born to my daughter and her husband on January 8, 2017 (Epiphany Sunday)
